Eremurus and alliums - perfect.

These foxtail lillies are e. himalaicus, and they shine like candles in the spring sunshine.

 I have five, but back in early April, a caterpillar chewed away two of the emerging blooms. Bloody caterpiller, left me with three. Anyway, I need more, so come the Autumn I'll pick up another five or six bulbs.
