I have so many different areas of my yard with this in it. Wish I knew what it was.

I think this is also a Salvia. Numerous different cultivars in this genus.
And where are my manners…Welcome!!!

It looks more like Perovskia to me, but they are closely related.

I'm with Danita on this one. My first thought was salvia, but I don't think salvia has the long stamens stick out from the petals.
