💙 always love the blue Salvia. Not sure if there is a common name for this species, and I tend to rely only on Latin names but for the sake of adding it to the encyclopaedia and differentiating it from other salvias/sage, this is a species Salvia from Bolivia and Argentina that a friend gave me last year. And it’s tall! Well over a metre, maybe metre/half and big leaves compared to other salvias I have.

I found one respected US nursery that refers to it as Meyer's Sage so that will do for now for encyclopaedia. The species is Salvia stachydifolia #salvia #salviastachydifolia #salvia-stachydifolia #blue
