My garden's got the blues (and purples)

I am loving all the blues and purples going in my garden right now. As temperatures quickly heat up in Florida, I'm hoping these hues will help keep things cool.
Plumbago auriculata is one of the rare real true blues for the garden. (Hardy to zone 8B.)
A mystery salvia sold to my local nursery as Salvia nemorosa 'May Night,' which it is not. This plant is a much lower grower.
Blooms on culinary salvia, Salvia officinalis.
The society garlic (Tulbaghia violacea) has just started blooming and should do so through fall. (Hardy to zone 7.)
Verbena bonariensis "Lollipop" grows to half the height of the standard verbena and is an absolute butterfly magnet in my garden.
