    I live in Zone 3, so supercold, supershort growing season. I would use your beautiful Englishy French/SW mashup as inspiration. I can grow catmint & Perovskia perennially here in 3; in the cold (Makes sense, no?) Russian Sage doesn't take over and is easily checked by things like monarda. But I can do almost nothing with lavender. So there's one obvious plant substitute. The daisies will grow anywhere. But how to get the fulsome pale-pink flowers? Peonies would work but won't grow here at the same time as catmint and Russian sage. I drag my heels growing Italian roses at the frigid ends of the Earth, but they've been engineered and it can be done.
