Now I've thought more and I agree about vinca and lamium, they've tried to take over here too, but they are OK in the right place. I love bluebells, but in the woods not the garden. And I actually agree with Verdun about crocuses. I once planted 400 here, but I don't think they like the hot dry summer and they all died after a few years. They flower such a short time and they need sun to open properly at an unsunny time of year.
Also, Jo reminded me on another thread (or was it this one?) that I don't like don't like Helleborus foetidus, the stinking hellebore. I've read on a site about them "All parts of the plant are poisonous, causing violent vomiting and delirium" and I think they are ugly.
