Donna, you have some favorites (that list is very long) of mine.  
    Lespedeza is so graceful and full of bloom is stunning.  Just allow 
plenty of room for mature size.  Mine has been moved once and now after a number of 
yrs it is battling for space with a very large (I keep thinking it is surely 
mature size) Royal Star Magnolia. 
    The Heuchera is one I just cannot bring myself to purchase but I was in a 
garden last night and this looked very nice.
    The buckthorn is so fringy & airy adding a nice texture to the garden.
    Heptacodium is a greater bloomer.  I am growing mine in tree form rather 
the more commonly shrub form.  The tree form shows off the great bark.  It is 
loaded with bud right now.
    I have not seen a Chamaecyparis that I did not like.  I have several 
dwarf ones for troughs.
