Winter container display

I have a Phormium Yellow Wave that I want to use as the main plant in a large terracotta bowl for a winter display on our west-facing front verandah-type porch. 

I'm stuck for ideas of other plants to combine with it for a striking display.

Any ideas please ...

OOooooooooooh Yvie - did you fall asleep on the keyboard?????????

Verdun, don't use up all that lovely sunshine - you're supposed to be saving some for us

And I've heard that  they're going to start filming Poldark again when we're down there - you're going to want sunshine if you've got more scything to do

I would take cuttings - they'll strike easily in damp soil - then when your original tree has to be taken down, you'll have more to replace it with.

Do you know what variety it is?

Much better to grow them outside, but some die down in the winter unless they're indoors.

Picture 1, the little pale green seedlings in the centre of the picture?  Could be seedlings from an opium poppy

Picture 2 could be a rather limp and sorry for itself Centaurea montana

but either could also be several other things - clearer pictures would lead to better identification
