The purple look like they could be Scaevola? The light green tuffs in the foreground are called by their common name Joseph's Coat, Petunias are in the bottom far left. The middle row are Zinnias, the red and green elephant ear plants are Caladiums, and behind them look to be Sweet Potato Vine climbing up the purple ornamental grass. The pink vine flowers belong to a Mandevilla.

J. Peterson Garden Design added this to Texas Gardener: What to Do in July
Plant heat-loving flowers: There are many colorful flowers that will take our Texas heat and laugh it off. To add a refreshing color to your summer garden, plant zinnias, ageratum, Blue daze, periwinkle, wax begonia, portulaca, purslane and torenia. Be sure to plant them in areas where they will receive the appropriate amount of sun or shade, and water them well after planting to get them established.
J. Peterson Garden Design added this to Texas Gardener's June Checklist

Now is also the time to plant perennials: black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta), butterfly weed (Asclepias tuberosa), Copper canyon daisy (Tagetes lemmonii), cuphea (Cuphea spp), four nerve daisy (Tetraneuris scaposa), coneflower (Echinacea spp), lantana (Lantana spp), ruellia (Ruellia spp), salvia (Salvia spp), plumbago (Plumbago ariculata), sedum (Sedum spp), coreopsis (Coreopsis spp), esperanza (Tecoma stans), gayfeather and blackfoot daisy (Melampodium leucanthum).Add ornamental grasses to your garden, including maiden grass (Miscanthus sinensis), purple fountain grass (Pennisetum setaceum), gulf muhly (Muhlenbergia capillaris), bamboo muhly (Muhlenbergia dumosa), Mexican feather grass (Nasella tenuissima) and inland sea oats (Chasmanthium latifolium).Shown: A variety of annuals and perennials with purple fountain grass (Pennisetum setaceum)
