In your zone 9b, it can still get below freezing, so perennial herbs will die back and return in spring. Annual herbs will die back in a freeze but won't return unless they reseed.
Only cool/cold hardy flowers will continue to bloom during winter. For example, pansies, violas, are cold hardy annuals. They will bloom during the cool months and die out in the heat of summer. Hellebores are perennials that bloom in late winter or early spring. Winter jasmine is a late winter blooming shrub. In answer to your question, perennial herbs like chives and sage could pair well with pansies and violas.
