veronicastrums need no staking...white,,pink, lavendar and have nice sculpted foliage.
verbena bonariensis too
sanguisorbas.........PinkTanna at 4 to 5 feet. Alba at 6'. Pink Elephant too
agastache black adder, sangria, and others
grasses like helictotrichon, calamagrostis, miscanthus, panicum at about 5 ' or more
lobelias like Hadspen Purple, Tania, Tania's Sister and more need no staking
acteas......superb bronze/black/brown sculpted foliage.....mine are now sending up spikes of scented white flowers
cannas.....have them here now over 7' flowering in reds, oranges and yellows
salvia guaranitica, uliginosa, amistad, Waverley, Leucanthemum, Love and Wishes, all over 5'
some of the medium height heleniums like Double Trouble, Hot Lava etc need no staking but even the others, if given the Chelsea Chop in May, will be fine without staking
persicaria Polymorpha stands well too as do some of the shorter aconitums like Stainless Steel.
kniphophias and crocosmias like Emily Mckenzie which are a little shorter than some
if you include those up to about a metre the list lengthens
right, there's a few whilst I now cool off in the shower
