I think I found it. It seems to be Texas Sage!

Well, the hummers love it, so it does not really matter what the name happens to be.

In case anyone wonders, I found the name:

Salvia coccinea


At least that is what the website I found said.

I should really do some googling before I say this, but I think Salvia coccinea IS Texas sage. I can't really tell too well from the picture (I'm not very good at identifying pictures!) but it certainly could be what it is. I have the pink and white form of S. coccinea, which self-sows quite nicely; used to have coccinea itself, and also a white form. Have no idea why the pink one stays around and the others didn't. But as you say, the hummers love 'em.
