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.

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

Hesperis matronalis, sweet rocket, that's biennial though

They may do better in acid soil but I've never been in a position to try that.
