What are these tall purple plants, please? They're great and since they're in Georgia, I have to think they'd do well in New Orleans, too. Any thoughts on that subject?

Meanwhile, back at the Rake-A-Lot Ranch
It helps me! I live in zone 6 and have a mostly shady lot with moist soil. Unfortunately, my hydrangeas have black spots, a kind of fungus, I think.

There is a spray you can use for the fungus. Go to your local garden center for help or your county extension agent.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

LuAnn Brandsen added this to Garden Color: How to Landscape With Purple
According to color theory, purples and soft mauves are gentle hues that help ease strong emotions. Make your yard a haven with this color combo's soothing hues. (Plants shown include astilbe chinensis 'Visions' and hydrangea 'Endless Summer'. )
Annie Thornton added this to Southeast Gardener's May Checklist
Admire blooming trees and shrubs. May is bloom time for southern magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora). These flowers give so much, and we need to do so little for them in return. I like to pluck a magnolia bloom and float it in a bowl of water near where I read or enjoy the garden at the end of the day. It lasts but a day, but what a day it is.The Endless Summer hydrangea is the first hydrangea to bloom on old and new growth, with the ability to rebloom all summer long. I planted my Endless Summer in 2005. To encourage reblooming, cut the blooms for drying or to put in vases for a fresh arrangement. This will also encourage the plant to set new buds.Prune rhododendrons and azaleas right after flowering.
Chinese astilbe (Astilbe chinesis, zones 4 to 8) is a great addition to the garden. As a summer bloomer, it grows thick, glossy foliage in average garden soil, just as long as the soil doesn't get too dry. 'Purple Candles' is one of my favorites, but try 'Visions' or 'Pumila' for a very low ground cover.
Chinese Astilbe(Astilbe chinensis ‘Vision in Red’)This taller variety of Astilbe works well between shorter hedges and taller shrubs. It’s perfect for shady gardens and is resistant to rabbits and deer.Where it will grow: Hardy to -30 degrees Fahrenheit (zones 4 to 8) Water requirement: Medium to dry, well-drained soilLight requirement: Part to full shade Mature size: 1½ to 2 feet tall and 1 foot to 1½ feet wideBloom time: Midsummer

If the plantings in 404 fail, filling the middle level with Chinese Astilbe could be lovely.

According to color theory, purples and soft mauves are gentle hues that help ease strong emotions. Make your yard a haven with this color combo's soothing hues. (Plants shown include astilbe chinensis 'Visions' and hydrangea 'Endless Summer'. )

Chinese astilbe (Astilbe chinesis, zones 4 to 8) is a great addition to the garden. As a summer bloomer, it grows thick, glossy foliage in average garden soil, just as long as the soil doesn't get too dry. 'Purple Candles' is one of my favorites, but try 'Visions' or 'Pumila' for a very low ground cover.
