it looks similar to, but I believe different, than Salvia, Meigans Magic.

My Salvia in question is this one:

and the leaves are quite textured, coarse.

Hi Carole. Salvia 'Waverly' came immediately to mind. I've had it a short while and it's a small one. My best guess. S. ''Meigans Magic' looks nice. Reminds me of S. 'Phyllis Fancy'.

Salvia 'Waverly' is the first one I thought of too, but since I've never grown it, I didn't want to mention it and I knew Leslieray grows a lot of salvias and would probably know.

Maybe @FBTS Kermit could chime in what salvia it is by looking at the photos.

Waverly is sounding good to me too. Thanks for that @HamiltonSquare LeslieRay.

@Marilyn will be interesting to see what Kermit adds to this thread.

Waverly, I would think.

Megan's Magic is not in the US, as far as I know.

@FBTS thanks Kermit re thumbs up/Waverly.

I'm in the land Down Under - I think I actually have a Meigans Magic but it's not flowering at the moment.
