Hi We saw this plant today and wondered if anyone can help with the name of it?
Thought it may belong to the Fuchsia family but not sure

Well it looks like salvia hot lips but I've never seen one that big!
That's Hot Lips Hoolahan!
It's Salvia x jamensis 'Hot Lips', a fairly hardy perennial plant. Really unusual flowers, aren't they! I believe sometimes they are all pink, or all white, depending on the temperature. The leaves smell of blackcurrants, too.
Thanks all for the quick replies...problem solved :-)
PS we saw this at Broadway in the Cotswolds today

Mine is a peachy colour but I guess you could call it pink?
Mine has some blood red flowers (definitely not pink or peachy), some white, and some mixed. It is supposed to be determined by temperature, but I don't see how that explains my mixed colours.
