This new "Bishop" has the same dark purple foliage, topped with 3' spikes of 3.5" golden flowers brushed with orange (RHS 17A). The robust clump is topped with hummingbird-revered flowers from June until frost. Just like the Bishop of Canterbury, there is also no Bishop of York. I'm sure the Archbishop of York will be quite dismayed to find he's been demoted by the horticultural of the worst nomenclatural faux pas I've ever seen.
