This Salvia was discovered in the Miahuatlan area of Mexico a few years ago. It is still awaiting identification. It is thought to be a previously undescribed species, but recent research indicates a remarkable similarity to the Kew herbarium specimens of Salvia lineata.
Rich...if you read this...does not look like your S. lineata!
Whatever it is, it is a rather monstrous, winter-flowering thug! Rapidly growing to 6 ft. plus outside, stems collapse and root along the ground! But, thank Heavens, it is not hardy here. But, I took cuttings last year, and now have a smallish, compact plant, with attractive, congested inflorescences.
Have shown a photo of this previously on my website, as Salvia PW248...where the flowers were more spaced out. But both from the same plant.
