I was out taking pictures of my flowers before the frost would kill them and I have a couple that I do not know the names of. Any help would be appreciated.

The second picture is a ground cover but it is so pretty with the little purple flowers on it.
Thanks in advance for the help for the names of the plants for I would like to rename them on my floppy and then upload them to my photo hosting place. Thanks again. Tina

Salvia 'Victoria Blue' - I think it is Victoria, looks like her anyway.
Lamium is your second- not sure which one offhand.

Thank you Theresa. I am not sure if the Salvia is Victoria blue or not for I got all my bedding plants from our neighbor that works at a green house. All my flowers were plants that were being thrown away. Some with my garden plants. They were all damaged plants and I got a bumper crop.
I will await to see what the second picture is. Thanks again. Tina

Second one is definitely Lamium. The only variety I can find with pink flowers is Beacon Silver. I got mine from someone also. I like it alot. It's easy to pull out where you don't want it. Takes shade and blooms from late spring on till late fall. Very hardy also.

Im going to guess...
Looks a bit like Salvia, Meadow Sage I have one but it didnt do much after I brought it home, it is still a baby but I saw bigger/older ones and loved them

Either above or Salvia Marcus, humm you may need to have them next to each other to really see the difference..
I guess you have 3 choices so far

yours may be a one-of-a-kind. i think they tend to cross pollinate.

Of course not, Foz!

I think it may be "GA" because other pics show it with just a touch of gold on the edges. Looks a lot like Dove's lamium.

Thank you for answering my questions. The Lamium is different. I have never seen it before and now I want to keep it just for the dainty flowers. It sure does look like the "GA". If our friend goes back to the green houses this year I will get him to keep an eye out for them and get a tag from one of the plants. Thanks again. Tina
