Lamiastrum

Good link. There are in fact two natives - subsp. L. g. galeobdolon and L. g. montanum. The first has flowering stems with hairs only on the edges of the stem, and the latter has hairs on the faces of the stem as well (there are other differences too). Difficult to see which plant the photo shows but probably subsp. montanum.
