    I think it could be salvia turkestanica
    @lyn kindly sent me a plant last year and it looks pretty much identical

    I agree.
    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    I’m pleased to hear that it’s flowering now, you can save seeds and grow more,  you know that though, you’re a Salvia expert. 🙂

    Oh yes @lyn I'll be saving seed.
    It's a lovely plant and the colour is gorgeous - Thanks :)

    Fairy queen do you mean, I haven’t noticed any smell on it all.

    Great! I'm so pleased they germinated for you.
    I'm not able to get much done in my garden this year. I'm having the house extended and refurbished - 2 months down, 2-3 months to go, and I'm having to live upstairs in the bedrooms thick with dust - I'm not enjoying it much. I'm looking forward to Christmas already :)
