How about planting low growing shrubs in there - heathers, hebes, lavenders, rosemary (low growing) .... or, plant alpine or rockery plants in there.
Your cordyline is not better in a pot, they're much happier in the ground.

Cordylines can go in most soils, so personally, i would put it in there.

You could place it in the centre - where that small circular bit of fence is, or, offset it to one of the corners - place it where 'you' find it pleasing.

It's going to grow a long trunk with greenery at the top, so you'll be able to plant around it ..... it's 'not' going to create a solid canopy of foliage that blocks light out at the base of it.

How about a row of lavendar that would look lovely and attract the bees?
