It’s only been a year

We moved in a year ago this long weekend, and have finally gotten around to putting some plants in the front yard.  My husband told me that if I weeded the front yard I could get some plants to go in it!

We have a deck sitting on top of two layers of kapunda bluestone. What I need is an idea of what to plant in the spaces between the rocks.

I hope you get what I mean from the pictures!

The original plan
Image
A view across the front - looking from the driveway to the neighbours
Image
From right to left we have - Hardenbergia violacea in white
Image
Oleria (something, we couldn't get the ramalosa but thought this looked closest to it)
Image
Then a big empty space for some Dianella 'Little Jess' when we can find it.
Then some 'brown-eyes' as my husband delighted in calling them. Leacophyta brownii
Image

Then some more Hardenbergia violacea "Happy Wanderer" in purple.
Image

So here are the spaces in between the rocks looking along the deck
Image

Then there are these spaces around the steps that lead up from the driveway to the deck and the front porch.

We are still keen to plant the Pyrus Calleryana either side of the deck with the Dianella Tassie Red's under them.
So I guess I am looking for a native plant that likes full sun that will fill the spaces and hide the bottom of the deck but not hide the rocks. ::wornout::

Thanks
