One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Salvia involucrata: not another salvia!
This is actually a different accession of a species I photographed earlier and the flowers are a bit lighter in color. After posting this I went to see the Holiday LIght Display at Brookside Gardens. Oddly, they had, in the conservatory, high potted specimens of this very salvia. It was too dark to photograph them but I enjoyed to coincidence anyway.
