What is this blue flower please?

Saw this at Ness gardens. Was looking for inspiration for things that would brighten up my garden this late in the season. This certainly brightened up the big herbaceous border.

I think it may be Salvia guaranitica.

It looks like Salvia patens, but it just as well could be another. Were the individual blooms rather large (for a Salvia)?

It doesn't look exactly like S. patens to me, but I'm not positive. I am sure, though, it's not 'Black and Blue', which has black sepals. Isn't 'B & B' a cv. of guaranitica?

I think it's Salvia Azurea. Check out this link and see if this is it.
