Can anyone jump in and identify these (foreground) plants please? We've chucked the tags, and they've done really well so we want to get some more next year....

Thanks in advance!

I think the yellow flower is one of the species of Mecardonia.
Blue - maybe something from an Aubretia...

Looking at the leaf formations, I think you're correct on the yellow ones (and the other). Been trying to identify those bloody yellow ones on plant ident pages without any luck, so thanks!

1 definitely Achillea as pointed out by @Owdboggy and the last one definitely aubretia. Love those two.

1. red-flowered Yarrow (Achillea millefolium cv., possibly 'Paprika' or 'Red Velvet')

2. cerise-flowered Twinspur (Diascia personata, or a hybrid involving this species)

3. yellow-flowered Garden Mecardonia (Mecardonia x hybrida cv.). Garden Mecardonia are bred from varietas of Mecardonia procumbens (M. procumbens var. flagellaris, M. procumbens var. tenella, etc.), though other species might also be involved.

4. violet-flowered Aubrieta Rock-cress (Aubrieta x hybrida cv.) Cultivated Aubrieta are hybrids of uncertain parentage, likely involving Aubrieta deltoidea.
