I would say either plant it in your border or re-pot in slightly bigger pot with topsoil/compost mix.

Do you consider gardening to be like art?

Yes, I would say that a garden is like art - after all you are looking at the complete compostion using colour and shape. Whether a gardener does it consciously or sub-consciously they will link colour and shape and size of plants , even foliage shape to give a balanced composition.  It gives people who would not necessarliy consider themselves 'artistic' the opportunity to be creative. The garden, with the changing of the seasons, has the added advantage of an ever-changing palette.

How about a Phormium 'Sundowner' (think it's called that - it's the red one anyway - centred with some clipped box balls and ground cover inbetween (topiary always looks good in a front garden).
