A lighter blue Salvia variety than others. I saw this in a mass planting at the Chicago Botanical Garden years ago, interplanted with poppies, and I immediately snapped photos to be sure I remembered this plant combo. I finally added it to my garden this last year, and although brand new, it grew and bloomed very long, strong, and late. I suspect it will be a favorite in my garden, for years. If you like Blue and Salvias, this is a winner!
