Does anyone know what this shrub is


I saw this and thought it had lovely delicate little flowers and was swarming with bees


  • That looks like a Salvia ... Possibly S. Hot lips. 

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

    I haven't decided if I like Hot Lips yet

    In the sticks near Peterborough
  • Thank you for that and am now going to buy one maybe even a couple of them the more pollinators in my garden the better as I lost all my fruit buds on my trees this year and ended up with nothing considering I had so much blossom than I had ever had.

  • I must admit I'm a bit underwhelmed with it too, I think I bought it, a) because I liked it he name and b) because it was reduced! 

    Life's tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late.

  • Salvia hot lips is very easy to propagate I would be doing this before I bought new plants, but If you are buying new plants I would wait until the spring as it's not always hardy and you could buy now and loose them through the winter.
