Cardinal flower or Lobelia cardinalis should be found in the perenial section -- you may need to find a nursery that specializes in perennials and native plants, or it may not be in stock until summer when it blooms.

Along with those golden shrubs you might want a solid green evergreen such as yew or juniper or mugho pine. This will add some texture and a color contrast.
