Advice needed

By this time next year you wont see the silver leafed plant, the celandine wil cover it. I would dig it out. Make sure you get every little bulb out or it will grow again.

Low Growing plants

I would go with the Hebes, you can get some really pretty ones with pink/red leaves.

Alternate with the Phormiums, look lovely, definitely not lavender, IMO. Not everyone can grow it, mine look awful, they hate acid soil and gale force winds.

It looks very straight and formal and I think grasses may make it look untidy.
