Can someone identify this plant, please
I think some kind of sage but do not remember where it came from.




Yes, a Salvia for sure, but there are so many hundreds of species and varieties.

Thanks Owdboggy. I did try internet for identification but it is an impossible task. It has a nice soft "wooly" leaves and the flower spike is very attractive.

I always loved your pictures of your previous garden, Owd. Do you miss it? I know it had to be a humongous job to keep it up.
Are you settled in your new garden?

We have a Salvia hians which is very like that one.
To be honest, no we do not really miss it. It was getting too much like hard work. Do miss the fruit though.
We are beginning to get on top of this place.

Good to hear that you have everything under control, Owdboggy.

I think I just identified the plant as Salvia verticillata ‘Purple Rain’ (meadow sage ‘Purple Rain’)

Thank you for taking time to answer my question.

We have that one, but it has not flowered as it is a newly bought plant.

I quite like it. That's why I inquired. I am sure you will be pleased with it.
