I bought this last year and it not only survived my nasty winter, it's blooming gorgeously! But I can't find it's tag anywhere...

Anyone got any ideas?

@FBTS do you have any ideas?

Sorry Toni, I don't know. It's a beautiful Salvia!

Very likely a S. pratensis of one of the complex that is associated with this species. There are so many varieties that it may be impossible to say more than that.

We have a great explanation of this group in the descriptive text for this group here: http://www.fbts.com/meadow-sage/

Here is a picture of a typical S. pratensis flower:

Kermit - I think this is the one.. I remember the name "Indigo Sage" on the tag. I got it from a local garden store who got a ton of plants from High Country Gardens.
