Perennials in Containers - What Works, What Doesn't?

I'm getting tired of tossing annuals at the end of the season, and I'm seeing so many interesting, textured, cool-foliage perennials for more interesting pots, so I've been venturing outside my annual comfort zone. I'm a zone 6, so I'm trying zone 3 stuff. This year, the Jacob's Ladder and heuchera I planted in a pot last year are coming back nicely. I was thinking that next I might try ajuga, since I like it, but I know it has potential to take over the garden, if I put it into the ground. My experiment is with frost-resistant containers left out in the yard, as opposed to containers hauled into the garage for the winter. What has worked for you? What has been a big failure?
