Notes:

Help! This bush has wooden branches, magenta blooms and my hummingbirds and butterflies LOVE it. Would like to know what it is so I can determine when and how to prune it.

    Agree with Witchazel. I only want to add that those leaves & flowers look like a cultivar from Salvia greggii group. Check out the included links for more information & pruning method. Best wishes! https://www.wildflower.org/gallery/species.php?id_plant=sagr4
