    My first salvia alongside half of Britain...not my favourite in anyway...but appreciate its whimsy 7-8 years later 😄

    Salvia 'Pink Lips' and 'Amethyst Lips' are also available if you want a collection of something a bit different.

    I'd go so far to say it's the only salvia I don't like. I think it's the Red/white combo I find jarring.

    Mine was a gift.  I am pleased to report that when stressed by drought and heat it's flowers are 99.9% plain white.  OK by me.
