Thumbs up Thanks Leslieray. S. sclarea is a biennial and shouldn't bloom the first year from seed, but lets wait to move it until Liz sees this. I've updated S. viridis to show it as annual instead of a perennial.

I'm sure you're correct, I have no expertise in Salvia, just went by the labeling on the seeds. The plant I ended up with was absolutely an annual rather than biennial. Thanks for the correction!
