Default Safe flowers and herbs?

What are some safe flowers and herbs? Preferably plants that aren't considered weeds/aren't wild, if only because I'd like to grow rather than collect them eventually when life isn't kicking my behind. So far I know pansies are safe, but what about other small, common garden flowers? Also, does anybody have any experience feeding herbs like basil? I've heard you aren't supposed to give a lot, so only small amounts, but I'm not sure how much is a small amount really? Can they eat it everyday? A pinky-sized amount? Weekly? I like to give them a wide variety of different vegetables and such.

Can hamsters eat purslane?

If you have a look in the wiki section there's a short list of some plants that are or aren't safe to use, you need to scroll down a bit.
There's also a section on plants & flowers here, again scroll down.
There are very few things you can grow as houseplants that are safe for hams, most tend to be weeds!
Herbs do have medicinal properties that are strong for hams so a tiny bit would be just a little piece of a leaf, maybe a nail sized piece & I wouldn't give the same herb more than once or maybe twice a week, remember too that some are very aromatic & may be a bit overwhelming for very sensitive little noses!
I'm not actually sure about pansies or purslane being safe tbh.
