I would think aubretias and other alpines, especially since it is the side of a mountain. Try to find out about plant auctions in your area. We have good ones in Wisbech every week where you can get trays of plants at v. good prices. You could ask the local auction houses if they have them

Dons, what size is the area and how steep is the slope, what type of soil and how much, if any, maintenance do you feel like doing. I'm not being nosey it's just that people can advise you better if the details are known. A photo could be good too.

Discodave, I think that if hellebores were in vibrant, bright colours they would look too garish at this time of the year when the light is so subdued.

Some of the photos above are truely stunning. I only have the white version of them, but I might have to consider the more unusual ones.

clogerhead is right, if you live near a stables you can find out about the fields where the horses have fed to avoid this problem.
