I purchased one of these to replace a similar plant that had gotten very small over the past 1-2 years. This plant was so beautiful, I had to go back to the nursery to buy a 2nd one, as the plant next to it was also looking sparse. The honey bees LOVE this plant.

Planted this spring as underplant for climbing roses on garden wall. Some plans survived; one or two died. None of the surviving plants is erect. Plants bloom and look healthy but lie along the ground.jackye finch, Arkansas, United States, 1 year ago

This plant is beautiful! Wow, this salvia can perform. I’m zone 5b and it’s incredible. I have 6 and they bloom and rebloom remarkably. They always have pollinators on them. Highly recommend. Vibrant color. I deadhead occasionally.Mandie, Michigan, United States, 3 years ago
