Coreopsis Early Sunrise is a smashing one and does'nt grow too big or need staking. Mine is'nt floppy either.
You've some great suggestions but I'd reinforce how good Cerinthe is, the bees absolutely adore it and it's a beautiful looking plant. Easy to grow from seed and once you have it you can collect the seeds every year. Mine self seeds and I overwinter them to get early flowers again for next year.
