botanical question

Dear Everyone,
I'm working on a dissertation (well, ok, I'm just in the starting phase) on 
community gardens and urban rehabilitation through them for my university 
here in Budapest, Hungary.
I know many of you work mostly with vegetable gardens. I'd like to focus a 
bit on flowers, trees and shrubs for one of my chapters. Can anyone give me 
advice on what flowers, trees and shrubs are suitable for a community 
garden? What are the types that are "low maintenance" that are good for

Hey, if any of you ever have the urge to come to Budapest to give a lecture 
at my school about your garden, you have a free place to stay and a built-in 
tour guide and translator!
