what to plant with pink chintz thyme

Asked May 15, 2017, 2:00 PM EDT

Hello, We have established a new planting bed in a mostly sunny (gets very late afternoon/early evening shade) location in a well draining area of our yard in south minneapolis. It is approximately 15 feet wide and three feet deep and within it is a nice sculpture. I am trying to plan my purchasing for the garden sale this saturday and hoping to use pink chintz thyme as my ground cover. I am wondering if you could give suggestions for what to plant in addition that may complement this? I am partial to low maintenance, fragrant but am a new gardener an unsure where to start with this large of a space. I've attached a picture of the area, from before we made the bed. Thank you so much for taking the time to consider this question.

Lamium White Nancy would look pretty, the white color will contrast with the sculpture and the thyme. Dwarf day lily would blend well so would lamb's Ears and sedum Autumn Joy.
