Can someone tell me what kind of Salvia this is? I don't necessarily need the cultivar. I just want to ID it properly in my database.

Jennifer

Looks like a perennial Salvia. These are the ones that come to mind.

Looks like Sage (Salvia 'Eveline')

Wood Sage (Salvia nemorosa 'Rose Queen')

Perennial Woodland Sage (Salvia nemorosa 'New Dimension Rose')

@FBTS could you chime in to help?

Thanks Marilyn. Indeed it does look like Eveline. But for sure not the other two. The leaves are too big to be those and they are not on the flower stalk.

Yes, according to Rich Dufresne and others 'Eveline' is a pink form of Salvia pratensis. Smiling

Could be any of the S. pratensis or x sylvestris clones. If unlabeled or not from a very reliable source, probably best so say something like S. pratensis - pink.

And that is what I shall call her on paper! In speaking I call her "Mrs. Miller's Salvia" since that is where she came from! Rolling on the floor laughing
