Help with front flower bed

Menlo Park, CA

Hi, please see attached photos.
We just moved to this home and would like to re-do the flower bed in front of the house. Right now as you can see it has lavatera and nicotiana.
The bed is 15' long by 4.5' deep.
Want to do a purple, red and chartreuse color scheme.

My idea:
Back row: three plant groups: either Evil Ways Buddleia in
the middle with purple delphinium on either side or vice versa. (Should I have the bushy plant Buddleia in the middle or the straight plant, delphinium?)--this Buddleia will be 4' tall and 5' wide? Generally delphinium in my area seem to grow 3-4 feet high only.

Middle row: Red Carpet Flower rose and Lorapetalum Ever red
and Nicotiana Langsdorfii

Not much room left in Front: maybe chatreuse and purple sweet potato vines? Or maybe chartreuse Sedum Angelina

ANY AND ALL ADVICE APPRECIATED!
