Salvia pratensis Haematodes
Eye-popping blue flowers on upright, somewhat lax stems. Ours have large, deep green, crinkly basal leaves. That makes me question the identity of this plant (received by me as seed of "Salvia haematodes"), since I understand there should be red veins on gray-green leaves for this variety. Salvias will always be hard for me to keep straight... This is a nice one, though, regardless of its true identity. It bloomed sparsely in its first year - the real show waited till late May in year two.
