May Night Salvia vs long blooming perennials

I'm in a quandry about my May Night Salvias. I have them in a couple of gardens...and, they bloom beautifully the first time. But they are short lived for me...even when I trim off the dead blooms. Since they tend to bush out, they take up alot of space and the foliage isn't that interesting. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas?? I get about a half day or more of sun, if that helps.

I have Agastache nearby which adds color for a longer period, but would love some suggestions for interesting additions that don't get bushy, but last a while longer than the Salvias....preferably blooming mid summer rather than in June. I've heard there are late blooming Daylilies and Astilbes that would be pretty, but need to research plant names.

Thanks much!
