Loved this large pink flowered Salvia at Great Chalfield Manor while on holiday last week.

It looks like Salvia involucrata to me.

Thank you both. I think Joseph's right because of the tip of the flower shoot. Much appreciated.

Thanks Joseph.

I knew it was a Salvia involucrata also and I'm happy that you got your answer.

Here's the database for Salvia involucrata if you like to add your beautiful pic. Rose Leaf Sage (Salvia involucrata)
