Puzzled

Hi folks. Thanks for id. The odd thing is that I was confident with an id of Red Bartsia elsewhere in same location (see my Red Bartsia post) but this is so much chunkier, stronger-looking and more upright that I didn't consider it to be same thing. Also such a pronounced hood shape in top lip and without the floppy tip to flower spike. I'd be grateful for any further comments on the variability of Red Bartsia. This version is quite an ugly brute!
Cheers, Jacky
