In your face front yard (side view)

Both sides of the sidewalk—including what is often known as the hellstrip—are planted with tall perennials. The bold strategy pays off—and these plants require less maintenance than grass.

I'm not a professional but it looks like phlox to me which comes in many colors. It's quite hardy (I'm in zone 5) and I have it in my garden also next to sage (and boxwood).

Russian Sage this plant looks great anywhere in the garden. Hardy in zones 3-9, Russian Sage thrives in full sun and well drained soil. Will even tolerate dry soil.
