Try planting a mixture of gauras and different grasses. Gauras are so pretty and very, very easy to grow. If I have a space and don't know what to put in, that would always be my choice.
"Siskiyou Pink" is a lovely deep colour, whilst "Whirling Butterflies" is taller and paler. They look good together and are completely easy and trouble-free. They also attract bees and other insects. Any grasses would mix well and grow easily. I've got a lovely furry one, though I don't know the name but you could choose from the garden centre. Maybe a blue one
