Okay, now for a "new" salvia - Salvia rosmarinus!
Look Familiar?
It's "Rosemary" which has been re-classified as a Salvia!!!
Here is a white flowered form we grow by the steps and the prostrate blue flowered form.
cheers

Oh dear - whatever next - too much for my ageing grey cells to cope with!

This is Salvia rosmarinus 'Severn Sea', one of the most vividly blue cultivars we've come across (sorry about the iffy focus - it was a bit blowy here today)
