These are growing in a neighbors bed, and they are taking over (except the first pic with the lavender flowers) … are they worth saving? Or just weeds?

    1) phlox
    2) creeping phlox
    3) now this is a toughie… The bloom looks like salvia, but the leaves look like cat mint.

    Worth keeping? Yes!

    Yes,Please keep.
    All three are great perennials that require little care but bloom reliably year after year. Prune or divide if you must. But keep for sure.
