Don't even know if it's a salvia or an agastache! I know that I planted it last year but I can't find the tag anywhere. I'm SOOOOOOO glad I didn't pull it up when I saw it growing earlier this year because it looked like a weed, but I figured that I'd let it bloom & then figure out what it is.

Any clue? Sorry for the bad pictures..

The first and third pics are some kind of Salvia. Don't know what variety. Beautiful blue color!

@FBTS could you chime in please and help identify?

Thanks!

This appears to be Salvia reptans. Late bloomers in many places, these Zone 5 perennials now come in 2 color forms. These are mainstay plants in the late border.

They clump rather than spreading.

The unusual variety, Summer Skies

The "wild" variety of West Texas Grass Sage

The two in a mix are really striking. Some of the hardy US native Salvias are so fine.
