Confused I think this photo is confusing...it appears the flowers are Red Salvia not Red Porterweed.
Take care,

Marilyn, *Blush* I am by no means an expert but I am growing Red Porterweed for the first time this year & that's why it didn't match my newly flowering plants!
I love salvias & have a ton of Blue Black, 'Lady in Red', & Victoria Blue as well as several colors of Salvia greggi!

I have a friend at another forum that needs a plant ID...where is the best place to post of picture??? I've only been on this site about a week!!! Thumbs up
I thought it might be Blue Lobelia but it isn't & it is blooming now so it's not Rocky Mountain Penstemon!
Take care, Lila
