What should I plant on my balcony?

So I have two balconies in my new apartment, both come with two huge built-in concrete plant thingies. What should I plant?
In terms of the first balcony, I'm looking for decorative plants that would look good (hopefully green) all year round. I like all sorts of ivies, i love lavender (although not sure it would not turn grey and ugly at some point of the years) - can you suggest anything else? Links to pictures of goodlooking plants greatly appreciated.
In terms of the second balcony, I was thinking about perhaps growing some herbs (of the non-smokable variety), not sure however if the climate (Germany) would allow for a year long production? What are some herbs that would keep well year round? Rosemary perhaps?
Please give me your suggestions and any general tips, comments, hacks, views on successfully planting on the balcony. Thanks.
