Default More help needed

I've looked and looked but so far I can't ID this plant. It's growing in my father-in-laws field here in Georgia.

Any ideas???

Clint, it looks like some type of blue salvia.

Clint,

it belongs to the family of Lamiaceae.
For further identification I need some more information about the plant (size) and a picture of the whole plant and the leaves in detail.

Cheers,

Stefan

To me it looks like a wild plant that we have around here called Foxglove, but without a much closer view it is hard to say.

Hah! I was right about salvia. And I see they categorized it after me . Although I don't know what a USDA Symbol means...???
