Please help me identify these plants, I am finally getting some color going in the landscaping, most was here when I bought the house, but all was severly neglected. Thanks, Jay

Blue one looks like Salvia clevelandii.

Reddish one is one of the "chuparosas".

Great pictures, by the way! Love them. I agree with Lazy as usual. The blue one is "Chaparral sage" Salvia clevelandii (I love the scent of the leaves) and the orange one is "Mexican honeysuckle" Justicia spicigera, and it's a very nice looking specimen by the way.

We'd love to see more pics of your landscape when you can share. These are great! Happy gardening! Grant

A little late, but thanks for all the info to each of you, I have been out of town on business. (Another reason my plants are neglected) Anyway, I won't post these pics to "What's looking good in May" Cause the cactus is done now, but here is a couple shots of Hedgehog Cactus and Orange Bells.
