This is the second plant which on the basis of leaves I would confortably place with S. sclarea (or may be S. macrosiphon) but membranous bracts are lacking. The leaves are broadly ovate-cordate reaching 25 cm in width, corolla is white with tube slightly exceeding calyx. Photographed from Baramula on June 24, 2010.

The only problem Tanay is that Corolla tube is Macrosiphon is much slender and longer.

From the only a little amount the flower tube is protruding out of the
sepal cup, I would think this is Salvia sclarea. I have no experience
with S. macrosiphon, so cannot comment on it. S. moorcroftiana flowers
protrude out of the sepal cup more than this. Also, bracts in Salvia
sclarea are supposed to be nearly as long as the flowers, which agrees
with the pics of the white flowers here. White color is consistent
with Salvia sclarea. Haven't compared other aspects.
