Hello, this little beauty is thriving in my partially shaded little courtyard but I have no idea what it is. I'd be grateful for any insights. Thank you
Foliage reminds me of the tender perennial shrubby Salvias .
Thank you Paul, that could well be a possibility as I've dabbled with salvia's before
If a positive ID , probably not getting enough sunlight to flower well .
Could it be some sort of clerodendron, especially C. bungei ?
Looking a lot like a young Salvia Amistad. If it overwintered, it may be taking its time coming up to flower. Young cuttings overwintered in a greenhouse and then planted out flower earlier than older plants overwintered outside.
It looks just like my salvia Amistad. They like to be in the sun I believe. it flowers well in to the autumn and is my favourite plant in the garden. Your plants look extremely healthy!
My S.'Amistad' was broken off completely due to high winds the other week
Thank you all so much for your advice and feedback, I'll definitely pop her out the front in the sunshine and see if anything blooms.
