New Perennials in the Garden's Flower Bed

I just planted some new perennials in the garden flower bed:

Thrift "Joystick" - armeria pseudarmeria
Salvia "Salute Pink" - salvia nemorosa
Coneflower "PowWow Wild Berry" - echinacea purpurea
English Lavender "big Time Blue" - lavandula angustifolia
And three ground cover plants:
Speedwell - veronica liwanensis

I am super excited! I want to get another salvia plant, and perhaps some Asiatic Lilies - Jessica got some for me a few years ago, but they died.

I'll take a picture later today and post it.
