What are the planting combination names for the first image shown a feathery type plant with a grass & purple flowers.  The image is shown under galleries

The feathery stuff must be fennel jbol. The purple is a salvia, possibly  xsylvestris 'Mainacht' but maybesomething more recently introduced as it's chelsea. Looks like a euphorbia in the back left. Can't think of the name of the grass but someone will know.

Looks like Gardener's Garters to me but may be a newer variety.  Invasive.

I wondered about that obelixx but thought it would be too ordinary for chelsea
