It's hard for me to tell from the picture but the leaves appeared to be smooth rather than ridged like in S.elegans...also S.miniata is a rather large plant and your photo appears large. You have seen the plant in situ, however.But one way or another, you know at least, that it's a Salvia.
Ceherzog, tank you for the tip, I'd never guess it was a Salvia plant.. I thought the leaves of S. Miniata weren't the same as in my spot, so I did a little research, and found this one, that seems to fit better.
I think it's Salvia miniatahttp://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/9180...
Thank you, mostly, I will.
No apology necessary @asergio. I said it *resembles* lobelia, not that it was a lobelia. I was merely offering you a place to start looking for lineage of ID.Good luck finding an ID! Be sure to let us know when you figure out what it is.
Hmmmm... Sorry, mostly microbe, but the leaves are very different...
Resembles a wildflower native to US called Lobelia cardinalis. http://www.wildflower.org/gallery/result...
