    Bip, post a photo of the mis-labeled Iris in the Plant ID forum and we will see if we can help get the correct name. I have several Iris that were mis-packaged by the 'well known' growers facility, someone needs better quality control :worried:

    After some googling, Salvia nemorosa 'Snow Hill' sounds like it might be it :)

    That's the one I have on the other side of the front path!! Thanks for jogging my memory, I have been looking at that one for a while wondering what happened to the tag, what it's name was. Now I am off to make a tag for it.
