What's this little cutie?





This is a perennial that I've seen locally - I think it's rather sweet but I don't know what it is - anyone?

    It's a salvia. Maybe hot lips but it might be too pink for that...

    On the other side is it a large shrub?

    I agree with you Vic image
  • I agree it looks like a Salvia to me.

  • It's the shrub "hot lips".     I've quite a few of those in my garden.

    Yep Salvia Hotlips! My plant has a mixture of white flowers, red flowers , white and red flowers and white and pink flowers! Lovely plant!

  • I'just acquired this plant after much searching its Salvia Hot Lips, a little tender but should be ok here as I live in the south.

  • Oh thanks everyone, that's a great help.  All I know is that it comes up every year in some of the gardens locally and seems hardy here on the south coast.

    Brilliant, now I can have one of my own!  image

  • Is the trick with identifying salvias the flowers remind me of pea flowers?
