Can anyone ID this flower?

It is growing along my driveway near the edge of woods.

Thanks, Joyce

Purple one looks like Great Blue Lobelia

Yes, purple one is Lobelia, not sure which species would be appropriate near you.

Whitish one is mountain mint.

Both native and very popular with pollinators.

Great! Thanks,

Maybe I can save some seeds.

Great blue lobelia is a perennial; if you let it go to seed, you'll have more of it (though mine hasn't increased too much -- just enough to share with a friend).

Mountain mint is a perennial also.
