Anyone know what zones this grows in? Maybe @bootandall? It sure looks to be another winner.

A quick search gave me the impression that this is an Australian/New Zealand cultivar and probably isn't available here yet.

The color is WAY off of what this really is. Bless Photoshop.

Blue and deep bluish purple in a Salvia microphylla? Light blue, yes. Darker and it is most certainly not a microphylla but has other genetics as well.
