Have you thought about herbs? I also have alpines and grasses in my other gravel border 🌼
Ive used fish tank gravel in the herb boarder as I needed something smaller than standard gravel size.
I let th herbs flower for colour and the rock rose (red and white) has not yet flowered in the gravel border.
That looks lovely!
I wish I was a glow worm
A glow worm's never glum

There are lots of alkaline, mat forming plants that would be fine, like aubretia, low growing campanula, erigeron, saponaria, camomile, creeping phlox, creeping ceanothus.
Get a hold of a copy of Beth Chatto's book 'The gravel Garden'. Lots of ideas in there and an excellent book.
