Yuccas, hardy cacti, hollies, plants of similar character.

I have seen the blue Sea Holly teamed up with Crocosmia "Lucifer" and it was gorgeous.

my book called "Classic Plant Combinations" suggests campanula

A recent issue of Horticulture magazine had a short article about sea holly---specifically, good companion plants. You might take a look at some of the photos and suggestions to see if any of them appeals to you. One of the combos used a striking orange flower, maybe cosmos? Or a pincushion type flower?
