This plant is in my garden, grown up to about 3' 1/2" to 4' tall and has gorgeous blooms. My friend looked it up on her phone app and it came up Squirrel's Tail - Justica Betonica. It was a perfect match. This plant shown by me has greenish white blooms with small lilac blooms. Does anyone else grow this plant. I was told that it was a Shrimp Plant but apparently not.

I don't have a problem with it being cold enough for me. I live about 40 miles west of Houston. It gets big here. Thanks for answering my question.
