    The blue one is a salvia pot-man and its difficult to make out the trailing one but it could be a prostrate rosemary. Does it have scented leaves if you brush your hands over it?

  • Salvia patens for the blue one. I expect other Salvia might manage to look like that too, but certainly looks like patens. Maybe a nice variety of it too - I've certainly seen cultivars marketed. Comes in pale blue too, but for me, the dark blue is the whole point of the plant. You might find some seeds on it (just two large seeds in the remains of each flower) - I assume it's brown and dead-looking at this time of year - will sprout from the bottom.

    No idea other the other - rather blurred.

    First one looks like Salvia patens, possibly 'Guanajuato'
    Second might be in the sedum family

    Is the second one indoors? If so, possibly foxtail fern (Asparagus densifolius)? Most of the pics on the internet are more upright, but I'm sure I've seen something similar that's more trailing. Can't remember where though :(

    :-) Explains why there's a red minutes display at the bottom - I somehow managed to explain that away as something on your window-frame. And asking about scent, or suggesting collecting seeds, not exactly helpful!

    At least made me think of collecting and sowing a few Salvia patens seeds. The plants looked a bit 'tired' last year - a few years in the same container, and I think you'd call it a 'short-lived perennial'.

    Oh yes, they've had some very fancy furniture on there. I thought it looked like indoors. Shame they don't put up the planting lists on their website.
