This is in a lovely pot arrangement at RHS Harlow Carr. I was puzzled by the foliage earlier in the year, and when I was back this week it was in flower.

Could someone let me know what Salvia it is? There wasn't a label in the pot.

Thanks
Sue

Hi,
It's Salvia leucantha. It's one of the purple flower/purple calyx varieties such as 'Midnight', 'Santa Barbara', 'Cislano', etc. Smiling
