The dark purple is salvia( there are many varieties). The lighter plant is Nepeta( Catmint). Both are perennials( come back every year). Both like sun. Neither is butterfly bush or lavender.

blooming time - How long is your bloom time? I dont see any other variations do these bloom all summer? What do you do to them to keep them so colorful?

My May Night Salvia has been in bloom since early spring, same as the Walker's Low Catmint Nepeta. I'll deadhead both as needed and they will bloom until we have a freeze. I've had several baby Catmint plants come up over the past few years that I've been able to move to another part of the yard or share with friends. Great plants and easy to grow. I live in East Texas where it's hot and humid in the summer. Hopefully, you can see my Catmint in this photo.

Salvia(dark purple) and Nepeta(light purple).There are different varieties and colors of salvia. Search on line to see which varieties would grow in your zone. I live in the northeast, and have both of these plants in a sunny location in my garden. In Florida, they may need shade, if they are plants that can grow in your climate.

Dark purple is salvia. Light purple is Nepeta, commonly known as Catmint. The variety may be 'Walkers Low'.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Deep, dark purples, like 'May Night' salvia, and light, airy lavenders, such as 'Walker's Low' catmint, are a classic blend. Try planting them in alternating beds to create a tapestry effect or intermingle them for a more informal look.
Frank Organ added this to Lessons from Monet's Garden
Even in very modern, soft landscape design, we can bring a touch of Monet's planting palette. Here, drifts of May Night Salvia (Salvia x sylvestris 'May Night'), zones 3 to 9, and Walker's Low Catmint (Nepeta x faassenii 'Walker's Low'), zones 3 to 8, are used to create a loose union of linking colors that roam quite freely — just as Claude Monet liked. To see the real thing: Monet's Giverny garden is open daily from the begining of April through the end of October. Guided tours of the garden are available in English, French and German. There are local accommodations, or you can take a day trip by bus from Paris.The New York tribute: See the exhibition at The New York Botanical Garden through October 21, 2012.More:Focus Your Garden PaletteLay of the Landscape: Natural Garden Style
LuAnn Brandsen added this to Garden Color: How to Landscape With Purple
1. Adopt a Color Strategy As with all colors, too much purple can backfire. Still, a single color scheme can work if you use enough variation. Here, for instance, light lilac catmint 'Walker's Low' and dark purple salvia leucantha 'Midnight' create sufficient contrast to keep this peaceful planting from growing dull.

urple can be used to help create a desirable mood in the garden — from peaceful to romantic to inspiring. In color theory purple traditionally indicates knowledge, self-respect, spirituality, dignity and wealth. In the landscape it promotes feelings of inner calm and self-worth, providing a sense of refuge. It also is considered useful for creative inspiration and insight. If you feel drawn to violet, lavender, plums and deep purples, here are five tips for adding this hue to your yard.
