Any tips on which salvias are hardy up here? I’m looking for a hot pink one. Or any other thoughts? Hot pink 2-3 ft high sunny free draining Scotland. To flower round about now ish.

    I have a shrubby salvia with red flowers.  Don't know it's name as friend grew it from a cutting.

    Ive not seen a dark blue shrubby salvia (not purple) but I would love one.

    I think Blue Note is the bluest shrubby salvia I've seen. Not as blue as patens or some of the guaranitica types though, and the flowers are smaller than most.

    My black and Blue Salvia is quite blue.
    Neon pink is a very bright pink.
