I'm looking for anything that doesn't have invasive roots, likes partial sun to full sun and is pretty and or fragrant and can survive in zone 6a. Thanks in advance! :)

Japanese iris and Louisiana iris are pretty spiky foliage plants, green all year, with beautiful spring flowers Texas Star Hibiscus blooms all summer long, gets about 7' tall and is a nice see through plant.
