daphnes....Odoraaureomarginata and Somerset are 2 I like
hamamellis....fragrant with quirky yellow/orange/ red flowers
abelias....flowering now. A real beauty is Confetti
euphorbia rubra.....evergreen red/black foliage and yellow flowers; Tasman Tiger and Ascor Rainbow
Lonicera Wimter Beauty....winter scent
Scabious Butterfly Blue and Pink Mist are evergreen with loads of colour from spring
erysium Bowles Mauve
dwarf pittosporums like Tom Thumb
evergreen grasses like festucas, stipa tennuissima, arundinacea, uncinia, and carex like Testacea and Comans Bronze
Libertia..a favourite for me. Unique grasslike foliage and white flowers
euonymous like emerald n gold
tulbaghias and pinks....both for foliage and flower
apart from the well known orientallis hellebores check out Corsicus.....nice pale green evergreen foliage and pale green flowers.
coleonema, breath of heaven, diosma...calll it what you will but lovely scented evergreen foliage and white or pink flowers. Highly tactile.
Artemisias like Powys Castle and Faith Raven
heathers like the winter carneas but the taller Alberts Gold is striking
some of the hardy compact geraniums like the black foliage Black Beauty and Orkney Cherry are attractive for foliage and lomg flowering
the microphylla salvias provide flowers from white, through yellow, pink, red and blue on dwarf shrubs.
potentillas too for lots of summer colour
Newb, the list is endless really
