Plenty of herbaceous plants Verdun, they make the summer garden. Annuals as well
An all year round garden has something all year round, it's not the same all the time.
Summer is easy, you can have your exotics if you like that sort of thing, in pots, put them in a GH in winter
Now is easy, still asters and chrysanths (or whatever we call them now), leaf colour. Always some evergreens, late bulbs, nerines still out, salvias. Winter has less, it relies on structure, evergreens and shrubs with interesting bark. But before you know it there are snowdrops, aconites,hellebores and all those infillers like noneas, so good for the early bees. Pulmonarias always look good in winter and flower early.
I could go on and on
