This plant was from a cottage garden  mix.

Broad rounded rough leaves  .big  ,rough texture. Thick single stem.

Type flowers similar to a salvia but big . Loose  and situated. They started off as like a cone in lilac ish


. Will try and get a photo  .just thought I'd ask in case anyone had any ideas 

They remind me of a very big salvia somehow.

    What first comes to mind with me is Impatiens Glandulifera commonly known as "Bobby's Helmet". I've had them in cottage garden mixes before.

  • Look at salvia turkestanica? HC
