I am ordered this one...still small but hoping for some pretty blooms come summer.
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Another salvia I haven't grown. The flowers do look pretty.

So many salvias to pick from each year. Hilarious!

This is normally listed as Salvia guaranitica. It is one of the hardiest of them and rather vigorous

I will be getting 2 of these beauties this year! Very excited as I think they will look beautiful near the darker blue flowered form and others.

Yes, I grew a patch of Argentina Skies and Brazil for a number of years and the combination of the two colors was fantastic.
