Another new plant for me, not recorded for NW Himalaya.   Certainly did not 
remind me of any known Himalayan species of Salvia!

Please note that *Salvia leucantha* is an alien species in this part of the 
world being a native of Mexico.  Reported to be cultivated in India and the 
All over the world we have species which have escaped from cultivation and 
naturalised.  'Enumeration of the Flowering Plants of Nepal' give
an altitudinal range of 1300-1700m.

'Flora of Bhutan' have a record of it being cultivated at Kurseong.
