Delphinium

Cornflower, if you want them them for cutting: compatible stem length and bloom texture, though you'll need two blue to one yellow for proper balance.
If you like more contrast, nigella might be even better.
I really like the blue/Russian sage idea: the contrast would be very interesting!
Behind every opportunity is a disaster in waiting.
