Sunset Hyssop with Anise Hyssop...or separate?

I had a question about mixing cultivars.

anise hyssop and sunset hyssop both get about the same height and I imagine the color contrast between the two to be visually appealing. However, anise smells like licorice and attracts more butterflies, while sunset smells like root beer and attracts more hummingbirds.

Would it be a good idea to mix these together or should I keep them separate? I noticed that hummingbirds seem to be a little shy around flocks butterflies. anyone else notice that??

I have the exact same question about "salvia sylvestris" and salvia coccinea. Together or side by side?

Thanks for your help! Tony
