I got this in a plant trade this past spring. It was suppose to be Agastache 'tootie fruitie' which it isn't.
Does anyone know what it might be? I was thinking maybe a veronica of some type? But I'm not sure. It's a small plant, maybe 7 or 8 inches tall. I'd like to make sure it's hardy'what ever it is' and if not take measures to protect it for winter. Thank you for your help. Joy

Thanks Sis. I think it could very well be Veronica Barcarolle. I was just searching on the web and I also see it resembles Veronica spicata Red Fox. Either way,it's hardy. I'm sure it's not Physostegia virgiana as I have that and it's different from this plant.
I appreciate your help.:~)

Could it be Celosia Pink Candle or Celosia Purple Flamingo? Looks similar. Pretty. They're both annuals.

My vote is for the veronica; the leaves are wrong to be celosia.
