Hinesburg, VT(Zone 5a)

Customer sent this, not sure what it is, but it thrives in a partial shade area. It looks like some kind of catmint to me, but am not sure. Thanks for any help!

OK, figured out the problem...here's the real picture. And, I think I know what it is, but for clarification. Blue Cardinal/Lobelia?

Better! Looks like a lobelia. Very pretty.

San Francisco, CA

I think that is a Salvia such as S. guarantica

Jacksonville, FL(Zone 9a)

I agree. The leaves look like Salvia, more so than Lobelia.

Dublin, CA(Zone 9a)

Yes, definitely a Salvia, and S. guaranitica looks like a good possibility http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/adv_search.php?searcher%5Bcommon%5D=&searcher%5Bfamily%5D=&searcher%5Bgenus%5D=salvia&searcher%5Bspecies%5D=guaranitica&searcher%5Bcultivar%5D=&searcher%5Bhybridizer%5D=&searcher%5Bgrex%5D=&search_prefs%5Bblank_cultivar%5D=&search_prefs%5Bsort_by%5D=rating&images_prefs=both&Search=Search I don't think it would be hardy in Vermont though, so if this is something that has survived winters there then it's likely a different Salvia species.
