Initial thoughts are also Wood sage. thought the seed heads may be too long, but have some in the garden and checked and they seem similar.
How do the crushed leaves smell?

It's a bit hard to tell from the photo but if they are square stemmed, leaves in opposite pairs and the top flower spike is leafless, it's wood sage (Teucrium scorodonia). I have not found any documented use for Wood Sage to date; if you know of any I'd be keen to learn of it.

Should the above help? From my own experience in gardening, the bumbles enjoy it as one of those plants that revel in shadier conditions.

Best,

Thanks, that is a help. I have a fair library of edible and medicinal plant uses and none of my books even mention it!
