Gardening guidance

It should come as no surprise that my modern, minimalist design and home furnishing preferences have spilled over onto my landscaping and gardening methods.

I'm not big on roses, hate geraniums, and cannot be bothered with leafy, fluffy bushes. My husband and I thought we'd be sly and planted a peach tree last year, which has still failed to bloom.

So now I'm in search of modern, cool plants and flowers. However, neither of my thumbs are green and I have no idea where to look. I perused nurseries to no avail (well, I was actually just be stubborn).

I'm looking for reader suggestions -- what plants, flowers, shrubs do you recommend for a hip, contemporary yard?

I'm certain the spelling is wrong but you should check out euphorbia. Comes in many different colors, my favorite is chartreuse.

Not sure where you're located, but Tony Avent has a great nursery full of unusual plants, which he tests before selling to be sure they live up to his descriptions (and the descriptions are pretty amusing on their own):
