The climbing dicentra is great punkdoc, a lovely shade plant. Copes with anything except hot and dry. One of mine  had its roots under water for ages last winter and flowered for weeks this year.

Let the growth expand a bit before you spray, the more green stuff it has to work on the more effective it is.

Dying Eleagnus!

Nicotiana affinis, perennial but borderline hardy. I mostly grow as an annual. Lovely evening scent.

Hesperis matronalis, sweet rocket, that's biennial though
