1. Stipa tenuissima (Pony tail grass)
2. Stipa gigantea
3. Lychnis coronaria (red campion)
4. Verbascum bombyciferum (Giant mullein)
5. Lavender
Also Agapanthus, alliums, Stachys byzantina, euphorbias and succulents. Some succulents, such as agave, will need to be over-wintered inside in Zones 9 and colder.
