I was thinking herbs too. I would suggest lots of different varieties of thyme. Also oregano and flat leaf parsley, winter savoury, summer savoury (think it is only an annual) tarragon, chives (can be invasive, but can be pulled out) a small prostrate rosemary. Not mint as it is invasive. I use 'Snow in summer' (I think it is properly called cistus tormentosa, but may be wrong) to soften some of my gravel areas. When it gets too big I just use scissors to cut it back; it will always grow towards the sun.
