I'd like to see a trimmed hosta... *snorts*

Go to a site like Bluestone Perennials and use their advanced search options.

WHY ARE YOU SHOUTING? The perennial forum here on GW might be a more productive location for this question. Have you tried there? You also might want to specify light/soil type if you want helpful suggestions.

90% of the fun in specialized plant selection is doing the research. Here are just a few plants families to explore that might meet your goal. Study miniature rose catalogs. The Thalictrum family has some interesting low growers. Santolina varieties. Ditto, Columbine family. Bleeding heart.

Look into some of the Veronica varieties; some of the campanulas; heuchera.
