Hi, Becky
The first one looks like Nepeta - probably Nepeta x faassenii, maybe even Nepeta x faassenii 'Kit Kat' . The second plant looks like Persicaria amplexicaulis - the straight species can have red, pink or white flowers and there is a cultivar Persicaria amplexicaulis 'Alba' that has pure white flowers.

Nepeta x faassenii

The small, tubular, purple flowers of this variety of cat-mint or 'catnip' are held in loose terminal spikes. Cover young plants to protect them from cats, which may want to lie on the plant, but sit back and watch the vast number of bees which will home in on the flowers.
