And the answer is …

 

P1000297 (1024x763)A little competition for this wet and windy Saturday morning.  Who can identify this plant?  The prize is substantial: the acknowledgement that you are a very clever person and you can bask in the glory of smartypantdom.  This surely will be sufficient.   Trophies, champagne, cash or food hampers will therefore not be necessary.

    I’m pretty sure it’s Salvia leucantha. They have them at Coleton Fishacre gardens near Kingswear – and they are LABELLED.
