I think they could be Salvia's.

HI Johanna, The purple spike flowers are indeed Salvias, including 'Caradonna' and 'May Night' varieties.

Sorry, there are just too many varieties in this garden for me to call them out individually. There are roses, salvias, peonies, poppies, echinacea, daylilies, playtcodon, siberian iris, knautia, geraniums.........

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Debra Prinzing added this to Give Your Garden an Arresting Point of View
Subtlety in the midst of abundance. A focal point can be a quiet punctuation point, like a period at the end of a line of poetry. For example, this gregarious double perennial border defines the landscape. But the exuberance of color is offset by a grassy strolling path that leads to a small but effective focal point.Notice the shrub at the end of the path, centered between two huge shade trees. This detail creates a natural end point of the perennial garden and can be appreciated from a long distance away. Imagine how the setting would look without this modest focal point, and you'll understand how valuable it is.
3. Flowering perennials. An almost unlimited number of flowering perennials pair well with roses. You'll want to choose other flowers that complement, rather than compete with, your roses, so look for perennials with smaller or larger forms, different leaf types and a variety of flower colors and shapes.
