I think this is perhaps not S. sonomensis but maybe S. madrensis? Vic wanted me to run this by a moderator. I tip my hat to you. @Vic @Marilyn @FBTS

Kermit (of FBTS) would be the best person to answer this and hopefully he'll chime in. I'm pretty sure you're correct in that this pic is in the wrong Salvia listing.

Don't recognize this from the picture. A better photo might help.

The blooms look too large for S. madarensis.
