    Am I allowed to put plant to be identified on here or is it only for the one above; Salvia sclarea turkestanica, thank you

    It looks like one of the Sage family to me. I would have guessed at Salvia sclarea but that only grows to about a metre high. Its very pretty whatever it is.

    Mel, start a new thread for a different plant.

    There is a red box at the top labelled "Start new thread"

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    See original post

    Nutcutlet - it could very well. I'm quite jealous as it is a real eyecatcher and anything that bees love is great in my estimation image
