I see it's not just my camera that can't capture the real color of the flowers. They are darker purple mixed with blue, not too far off from 'May Night'. It's too bad this isn't a taller Salvia. I have only had it for a week but looks great with almost no transplant shock. I will try to update my rating after it's first winter.
