True Blue Flowers that grow/thrive in Zone 9

Over the years, I have been steadily adding true blue flowering plants to my garden. And I don't mean lilac or purple flowering plants - there's a difference between violet/lavender and true blue but many descriptions from catalogs and the Internet describe purple/lilac flowers as blue. I do have quite a few lavender/purple flowering plants in my garden, but that's because I was tricked by some catalogs and Internet pictures. I swear I think some of those pics have been manipulated to make the flowers look blue rather than their actual violet/purple color. I bought Spanish blue bells and blue hyacinths, but they still have a purple/violet tinge to them
