Meadow Clary

Meadow Clary, Salvia pratensis, is a common plant in the horticultural community but is also found as a garden escape. In the south of the UK it is considered native in the wild. It grows in the verges around our house but here is a rather magnificent specimen growing in front of the Parliament buildings in Budapest. 
It differs from Wild Clary in having less deeply toothed leaves and long projecting styles.
