    Default Purple fuzzy flower

    Hi, does anyone know what this flower is? Saw a lot of it at Stan Hywet in Akron a couple weekends ago. Literally felt like velvet.

    My guess would be something in the salvia family. It looks similar to the plant discussed here a few weeks ago that some say is Russian sage or Mexican sage.
    So many weeds.......so little time.

    Kind of looks like False Dragonhead.
    Chuck Norris has a grizzly bear carpet in his room. The bear isn't dead it is just afraid to move.

    It is Salvia leucantha.
    Common Names are Mexican bush sage, Mexican sage. Nice perennial for late season color.

    Thanks, I'm in Zone 5 ...assuming there is a cold-hardy variety up here

    Looks like Mexican bush sage to me. Bees love that stuff.
