I grew it in a container with a couple of other salvias, but haven't decided if I'll grow it again.

Same for me Marilyn...we had a very, very, dry hot summer this year and it did hold up pretty well...I am leaning on trying it again Shrug!
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...
