The same with ornamental grasses - but they have to have room! I also love Oenothera. Full of blooms for so long and so easy! I hate tradescantia - I don't think even the flowers are pretty. I also hate pachysandra and English Ivy. Boring as well as invasive. There are not too many things I hate but boring and green without even a flower will get me every time.
