Help me match the plant names with the photo

I found this captioned photo on Pinterest, but I'm not sure which names go with which plants. I clicked through to the associated website and still couldn't find it -- can anyone help?

For context, they're water wise plants for the western US. I think the yellow is coreopsis, but beyond that I have no idea. I'm particularly interested in knowing what the silvery one is called. Thanks!

The plant names given (which may or may not be reliable -- it is Pinterest after all) were salvia, achillea, nepeta, coreopsis, centranthus, and artemesia. Here's the photo:

Here's what I think they are:

salvia - dark purple
achillea - the yellow ones way in the back
nepeta - light purple
coreopsis - yellow
centranthus - reddish-pink
artemesia - silvery leaves

Nice garden--super low maintenance plants and a midsummer bloom that's hard to get.

Daffodil is spot-on with the ID.
