Are there any plants that you really don't like?

After watching gardeners world last night I realised that I detest Astilbe plants. Always knew they weren't really my thing but seeing a whole area full of them almost churned my stomach!
It got me wondering if there are any plants that people just don't like 🤔 reasons why would be interesting too!

    How long a list do you want?  ;)
    I detest all " bedding" alyssum, lobelia, salvia blaze of fire, french marigold,  busy lizzies, petunias etc etc etc. ( can I add hanging baskets? )
    Salvia hot lips.
    cordyline australis.
    Salix flamingo 
    heuttonyia chameleon
    Variegated plants which aren't as nice as the none variegated, eg ceanothus and pyracantha
    the list could go on and on and on
    Devon.

    Forsythia, wrong yellow for spring
    ceanothus, The dark green leaves don't match the flowers and they're creepy
    those big marigolds that look like washing up mops and
    michaelmas daisies. They mean summer is over
    In London. Keen but lazy.

  • Any variegation that looks like a mineral deficiency.

    Would it be easier to ask what you do like? 😉
