Euphorbia polychroma: An undemanding perennial, Euphorbia polychroma offers a pleasing contrast of colors on a neat, almost architectural form. It grows to about 15in and produces a splendid show in May from bright yellow bracts. Their color is long lasting, but changes to rose-bronze as they age above the green foliage. A sensational ground cover plant or accent in a sunny garden. Quite tolerant of hot, dry conditions (but not the heat and humidity of the South).

Dierama pulcherrimum, Blackbird.  Full sun and in a warm, sheltered spot. Flowers June to August.  Angel's fishing rod is perfect for introducing movement to a well-drained border in a sunny, sheltered site, or for overhanging water. Initially slow to establish, it looks particularly good with early autumn-flowering ornamental grasses.  More: http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/dierama-pulcherrimum/classid.2694/

This is the nearest photo I can find that shows the kind of overall appearance of the finished garden borders, but if it could be a little more structured & formal looking, even better!
