ID please? When we visited the Botanic Garden of Wales recently I saw this lovely flower which looks familiar but can't think what it is and there didn't appear to be a label - does anyone recognise it? It was in the 'biome' so not a hardy plant presumably.

Sorry but cannot confirm. Looks like a 'salvia' but there are so many types of this that it may or may not be one of them ... let us know if you find out what it is, please?!?

My gut feeling was maybe one of the Plectranthus family, but I'll be less brave and say one of the Mint (Lamiaceae) family - covers Plectranthus, Salvia and a couple of hundred more genus too!
Not much help reallY!

I'd go for Plectranthus too, I think. It's very pretty! :-)

Why is the plant you want to know the name of never labelled!!
