This, with special thanks to @dirtdorphins, looks to be a real charmer. It's another that I will keep my eye out for, and perhaps even manage to put together as fine an arrangement as Queen Dirt. Smiling (She's one of my heroes here.)

This is a great little salvia! I love that it survives my winters too Thumbs up
I got it here
http://www.fbts.com/salvia-cae...

and I'm so glad that I did!

Do not do that arrangement Sean, please! I thru that creeping thyme in there to help hold the hill but I have to keep ripping it out of the salvias --bad idea!
and the penstemon is a self seeded volunteer from above in a very unfortunate place for total harmony with the cute little sage Rolling my eyes.

I gotta go get another photo of it this year, it's grown Smiling
