I bought this plant last year and can't remember what it is called. It is a perennial. Any ideas?

It looks like a white Salvia pratensis to me. Swan Lake strain?

hi there,
quite sure a Salvia, perhaps a well fed S. nemorosa. The uploaded photos didn't work, perhaps you could fix that. Probably one could find instructions searching the perennial forum.

Bye, Lin

The picture isn't real clear, but could it be a white physotegia? Mine is sprawled like this one. Mary

No, it can't be a physostegia, because it has flowers like salvia pratensis. Flowers on physostegia don't look like salvia pratensis.

hmmm, must agree with growlove - it does look awfully like physostegia )although I am claiming duff eyesight)

This is the plant in question:

Salvia pratensis

This is Physostegia virginiana :

Physostegia virginiana

This is Salvia pratensis:

Swan Lake

They are too different to be confused in my opinion.
