Author's notes

Single colony over a small area- rough estimate c.60 maybe. Have not seen it elsewhere. Shame if this turns out to be a weed, quite pretty

I think that's Wild Sage. In my limited experience with this species (and other salvias), it appears that the plants have distinctly boxy square stems.

The conservation level key does not seem to be updated!

Can we get the system to provide a link to a Wiki for some details please?

The conservation level - exotic - appears to be correct. It is an Exotic Other Wildflower.
