The photos aren't ideal - a day when it's still enough to get clear shots in West Cumbria is rare indeed! But hopefully someone will be able to make some suggestions. The plant, which I have growing in a big pot, sprawls and has many spikes of deep pinky-purple flowers, which are labiate.

it is one of the Salvias probably a S. microphylla but as to which variety I don't know.

Thank you. Yes, the shape of the flowers should have given me the clue! As to which one it is, we may never know -there are so many to choose from. But it's a lovely plant and perfect for container growing. Thanks again.
