The spiky blue flowers in pic #3? Echium vulgare (she lists the name is under the picture btw ;-)

It should be hardy in your zone. It is also likely to be invasive: noxious weed

RE: what are these?

Annie has some nice Echium in her catalog. They do very well along the California coast, not to sure in your climate. Al

RE: what are these?
