cabbage and kale too. Some neat varieties out there. I think winter foliage can be beautiful, love the combination of parsley with foxgloves.
The foxgloves will over winter and then bloom in the spring. Thanks Yamini for the mention.
Dianthus. I cut them back when they stop blooming in Jan/Feb to about 4 inches, then they come back full luscious and beautiful for spring.
Another great back drop plant is rainbow chard. You can also use Dusty Miller but need to keep an eye on it for leggy-itis and harshly prune when necessary.
