Pick your collective garden brains here. 
I have a jewell border, based loosely on one that was at Chelsea a few years ago. Through my Carex bronzita jewell coloured plants grow up. 

 I have peone 'Buckeye bell'. Salvia nemerosa carradonna, Rose William Shakespeare 2000, Some iris - burgundy, sapphire blue, deep blue and a wine coloured one to go in. Growing through also is a selection of astrantias. and Lobelia 'Queen Victoria'. there should also be some bright orange tulips but seem to be bashful this year! 
I have widened this bed by about a foot on one side, and also pulled up some of the carex as it was taking over, I was going to put in some Bishop Dahlias till I discovered that they grow very tall, What i need is/are statement plants to come up like jewells. about 60cm - 70cm high 
I had forgotten I needed some until I dug over the bed today. 
It needs maybe 2 plants but they would be repeated as spots (does that make sense) 

Oh there are also lilies  if the lily beetles haven't had them
