Debi, it does looks like one, although a close-up photo would tell us for sure. Here's a link to one of the photos in my journal - S. pratensis for comparison:

As you can see, the plants appear to have similar habits, although I'd guess yours is a different variety. Yours appears to have more of the typical silver/green foliage that salvia is known for.

Its a salvia, probably one of the many newer perennial hybrids. No idea which one though.

Debi, I'm new here, but I saw your Salvia? picture. I'm from Ames, Iowa and there is a lot of that perennial salvia here used by local landscapers. I haven't been able to find it local greenhouses and would like it.

Do you know of a good salvia that grows well in zone 4-5, it's name and where to get it?
