There are several bushes and perennial grasses that stay shorter and won't block your view. Some ninebarks stay short and are easy care and come with a variety of choices on colors of the leaves. Then there's the native version of bush honeysuckle with one example being Diervilla Kodiak® Orange.
I'll do short lists of some bushes, grasses and some perennials to help give you some direction. There will be other cultivars you can consider of each also
Diervilla Kodiak® Orange
Physocarpus opulifolius Tiny Wine® Gold
Physocarpus opulifolious Tiny Wine®
Calamagrostis x acutiflora Karl Foerster
Panicum Cheyenne Sky
Miscanthus sinensis Morning Light
Echinacea aka coneflower
lilies, daylily, oriental and Asiatic lily
I would also add some ornamental trees that can handle sun like Redbud, fringe tree, magnolia and there's some others my mind blanking on.
Hope these help you some.
