Shown here in fall, the sun rose has stopped blooming for the year and the overall scene is carried by the upright and airy form of the grass with its tawny tones as it goes dormant for the season and the strictly columnar Tiny Tower Italian cypress. We've composed this simple pairing using Henfield Brilliant sun rose which has showy orange blooms with a yellow eye. However depending upon your color scheme, selecting a variety of a different color would pair equally with the other two plants in the combo as they're both pretty neutral and flexible in terms of a colors they'd pair with.
