I like salvias with orange flowers.

I see you have this one. You'll have to let us know how it grows and show pics. I'm guessing you got seeds, since FBTS lists it as a special order plant.

Yes Marilyn I did start some from seed but unfortunately none of them survived. They were part of my first batch and i sowed all the seeds I got so had no more to try again (one of my lessons learned- do not sow all seeds the first time). This is one I was looking forward to, so I may try it again next year. Then I can contribute my experience with it. It does spread by runners. Some people do not like that but I do because I have room for them to spread. I like the color of the orange flowers.
