trailing perennial for JM in a container

Hi,
I have an Autumn Moon Japanese Maple in a large antique copper
Wash tub...18" high x 24" diameter. I would like to have some perennial trailing plants around the edge because the plant is in a plastic nursery pot inside the copper washtub and the plastic rim doesn't look so great. Do any of you have any trailers with your container JM's that you love?
Thanks!
Julie

A gentian with a flat growth habit that produced its blue trumpets when the maple was in autumn dress could be exciting.

I agree that the coloring would be gorgeous! I always admire them when I'm hiking. I've been researching gentians a bit and find very little info and what is there makes them sound fussy. Did you know of a particular type that would do well in sun and acid soil?
