@HamiltonSquare

How's your salvia growing? Do you still have it? Pretty pinkish flowers.

I see from the database that it is hardy to zone 6. Haven't heard of this one before.

Yes it is still here. It was old and woody when I started here and about 3 x 3 feet. I had to trim it hard this season to bring it into compliance with new planting guidelines but it is responding well. We had a look at it during a private tour today and it's just starting to bloom. Here's an old photo from 2013 at full size and full bloom. It does well and blooms April through October and maybe longer. Pinkish is about right though none of my photos quite capture the color properly nor can I properly describe it other than to say there is a slight orangish tone to the pink. I'll post a current photo in a few days. These are from March 31,2013 and Oct.30, 2015. As long as it's happy I'm happy to keep it. I tip my hat to you.

Here it is today. Just getting started on the bloom and lots of new growth from the woody base after a hard pruning.
