How tall were these plants? Are they growing in a pot?
I thought Angallis but they rarely grow more than 12".

Beautiful picture and the blue of that flower, together with the Nepeta at the front, is stunning. The darker one looks like a Veronica, but I don't know of one that grows that tall, perhaps Parahebe perfoliata, though I can't see the leaves. Someone on here will know!

Scotsgran. They are growing in the soil :o)), I put the pic of Barry sitting on the bench so to give an idea on how high they are :o)) xx
Honysuckle. It is the darker one I wanted ID of, there are not many leaves, the leaves are quite small & pointed, if you can zoom in on the top pic you can just about see them :o)) xx
