I've got some of this growing too. Got it from a plant sale at the botanical gardens a couple of years ago. Can't remember the name and it's probably not native to Alabama, but boy they sure do love it, don't they. Mine doesn't selfseed but I've taken cuttings from it.

That's it, Autumn Sage! Couldn't remember the name. Blooms most of the summer and the hummers love it.

Beautiful photo of Stachys coccinea. What other native plants have you added?
