The purple plant in the picture looks like Astilbe to me too. This perennial comes in various colors - purple, pink & white fo sure.

Given the orange helenium's bloom time of late summer, and the shape/height of the purple flowers, they are definitely monarda (aka bee balm).

I’ve been trying to get my vinca (periwinkle) groundcover to spread to a larger area. I tried rooting in water, rooting compound then starter soil packs: no success. Any advice?
