Micromeria brownei/Clinopodium brownei
I ordered the plants from Arizona Aquatics, I tried to get anything that was native to North America, , one of the patients wanted me to put some wal-mart bulbs in the tank so I did, and he kept bringing me more so i have a ton of them in the tank.
they are huge

i ordered the lobelia from Arizona aquatic gardens. tell you the truth i am not a plant buff, i ordered plants that said they were from north America, and had a ton of help via advise from the web. it has 8 or 9 times its original size, but it does not seem to be racing to the top like the other plants.
the wal-mart bulbs have become a problem with covering the top of the tank, so i have taken to plucking the runners that get to the top of the water.
I also put a hand full of duck weed in the tank to help stymie the green water that i had at first, I remove all i can get at each weekly water change and in 7 days it covers easily 1/3 of the tank again.
gonna have 2 start cutting the stuff out of the middle of the tank, by next week it will be sticking out of the water.
ill post another Pict tomorrow

Do you know what species those bulbs are?
My guess is A. crispus or something similar. Some sort of Aponogeton for sure.
