Bee attractive sage ground-cover- Quadra island

Right in front of the medical clinic on Quadra Island,  a raised bed had some surprises in store for me.  I was certainly not expecting numerous bumble bees foraging on 4 patches of sage ground cover.  We were meandering along the store fronts, and there they were- too busy to take any notice of the photographer.
Very little of the ground covers’ green leaves were visible amongst the dense layers of flowers.

There were numerous bumble bees present on these patches of sage.

The bees’ tongue is visible probing the flowers

    hi, can you tell me what the name of that ground cover is? i think it is a “sage”, but what kind? (plant name, not colloquial name)
