White and pink blooms. Comes back every year. Kind of looks like a sage/salvia or even agastache type plant.

Probably is a salvia, I think I saw one like that recently when ATP did Salvia Week.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

Sure looks like the lovely Hummingbird Sage (Salvia coccinea 'Coral Nymph') to me too.

You got it! Thanks!

It's only hardy to zone 8, we're in zone 7.
It spreads rapidly, it must go to seed and that's how it comes back every year.

Thank You!
