Sorry, but I think both of those are great.
My Aucuba is in dense shade, under the Beech trees and really shines out.
I have a number of Euphorbias, they provide: coloured leaves, winter structure and beautiful acid green flowers.
Big blousy Begonias are about the only thing I hate, but I have grown some of the smaller flowered types and some with the highly patterned leaves.
