    Here’s a few off the top of my head…

    Senecio ‘Angel Wings’

    Brunnera macrophylla ‘Silver Heart’

    Butia odorata

    Tillandsia species

    I’m sure the rest of our lovely members can help you out more! 😀

    Definitely Senecio Angel Wings, mine has just sailed through -5c without a hitch, and also the lovely but not as hardy Plectranthus Silver Shield (easy from cuttings or lift for the winter)

    Echeveria cante White Cloud is pretty spectacular too once it gets to a decent size.
