Perhaps Dracocephalum for the first.

It would be helpful if you'd add photos of the entire plant and the leaves.

the first image was from nearly 3 years ago. I didn't have any more images of leaves or whole plant but I think you are right that it is not scuttellaria. I know both of them are some kind of mint or herb.

how about the last two images? are they belonging to salvia?

I'm thinking that your latest photos are of a Stachys, perhaps Stachys densiflora 'Hummelo'.

I just did some research to indicate that they are both belong to salvia. The first image is Salvia officinalis "Berggarten" and second image is salvia officinalis.

thanks for the inputs,

Pham
