Didn't know what this plant was when I received it but now that it's bloomed I've done some looking and I think it may be Iranian Oil Sage (Salvia atropatana). I could't find much on the web but I see FBTS and Robins Salvia's both have it. Would appreciate any other ideas or a conformation. It was a basal rosette of leaves the type of which you can see on the flower stalks which are now about 40 inches tall. I tip my hat to you.

The "Salvia of the Day" 07/22/17 looked immediately familiar and I believe that Salvia transsylvanica is a match for mine. Anyone agree of not? I tip my hat to you.
