Has anyone planted one of these in a pot?

    Do you mean Salvia "So Cool pale blue" ? If so, l have  :)

    Mine was in a pot to begin with and I transplanted it into the ground but now I’m worried it’s going to go rampant as it’s spreading fast. I was actually going to ask you @AnniD how big yours got and whether it was a creeping layerer (like Nachtvlinder), you don’t happen to have one in the ground too?!

    Yes l do @Nollie, it seems to be behaving itself and staying put. I know what you mean about Nachtvlinder, that is definitely one for a pot  :). I don't think SCPB is a layering creeper.

    Oh that’s reassuring @AnniD, thanks!

    Does Blue Note creep? I am about to put it into a large earth bed and really don't want it to spread.

    If memory serves me right l think it does @Fire .
    I have just done a quick search on it, and can't see any mention of  it creeping on any suppliers websites but l'm sure it did for me .

    I see that SCPB is of the same series of "Mirage", I have three others and they are all shrubby.
    @Fire I have Blue Note, it does creep but not as bad as Nachtvlinder.

    My Blue Notes don't creep, or at least not yet after about 5 years, so I don't think it's going to.

    I may be getting confused with "Violin Music" @JennyJ. I suppose it can depend on circumstances. 
    Nothing is as bad as Nachtvlinder when it comes to creeping though (in my opinion).
