Description:

Is this wild basil? Looks similar but not sure if the flower heads + leaves are right? Originally thought it was red dead nettle but leaves are different (longer/narrower).

Common hemp-nettle

Not sure if normal common hemp-nettle or hybrid?

Bifid

The distinguishing feature is the notched central lobe of the lower lip of the flower, with dark markings almost to the edge. The leaves are similar in both species mentioned.
