    The low green vegetation is Catmint, which already went through one blooming period. The perennial above in bloom is Russian Sage. You are correct with the grasses, "Karl Foerster".

Use drought-tolerant perennials. Plants that don't need a lot of fuss are your friends. They're worth knowing about because you want your garden to perform and look good, especially when the rain gauge is empty.Russian Sage, the flowering plant on the top of this stone wall, is one of the longest blooming perennials and it can take hot, dry conditions.

Russian Sage. Drought tolerant. Good for circle.
