No polytunnel will be good but I said...some fleece to hand too.  As long as they don't get wet

Not true Fairy.  I was born in September to prove it 

Empty Space??

DD, no don't think echinops would look good with Amistad.  The former would be swamped physically and outdone colourwise.  Helenium like sahins would look superb  with Amistad though or a red/orange like Hot Lava. Just those for summer...what an impact for months

Salvia Amistad is a good purple blue option.  One plant now will easily provide cuttings for large flowering plants next summer.  Mine are in  excess of 7' from cuttings last autumn.  You could plant a dozen in that area for colour for months DD

Never "frost" my cannas.  Dont believe  they need that. They do need some dormancy Hostafan but polytunnel sounds  ok.  Fleece may be wise.  Try to get them growing ASAP in spring
