Hi All,

Ive had great luck on here, so hoping for some more info!
I have a flower bed where I am unsure of what 50% of it is
All low to the ground, fairly nondescript that I cannot match with anything on Google.

1) had some pinkish/red flowers on longer stalks, came out around mid June
2) this one has never bloomed, and its leaves come off a thin, irregular branch. Leaves are quite waxy
3) bushel of waxy leaves, I believe flowered in spring but cannot recall, likewise for 4.
5) bright golden leaves, no blooms
6) stalks about 3 feet high

Any input would be most helpful, thank you!!!

# 6 maybe nettleleaf agastache?
For me, gardening is really just an excuse for playing in the dirt. Admittedly, plants are a satisfying by-product.
