What low-height wildflowers would work in a narrow boulevard?

My family just moved into a new house with a narrow grass boulevard between the sidewalk and the road (~2 feet wide). I'd like to plant low (12-18"), native MN wildflowers instead of mowing the grass. My thought is that taller wildflowers might start to obstruct the sidewalk, which I'd like to keep clear. The boulevard is in partial sun.

Any ideas on what we should be looking into? We're also seeding our lawn as a bee lawn, but it seems like we could get more vibrant with the boulevard.
