Old standbys: Lambs ears (Stachys byzantina) and chives (Allium schoenoprasum). Great combo and easy to propagate. Photo via Chiot's Run.

Chives - Delicious evergreen herb that will come back year after year. The slim, elegant dark green leaves can be snipped with scissors and used as a spicy addition to salads, or in soups, stews and curries. The pale mauve pom-pom like flowers, which are also edible and look wonderful when sprinkled over a summer salad.
