hi Marilyn and others; yes I do have this plant. Grown from a cutting over last winter so not overly big. I've taken several cuttings from it as it's grown though and some are looking better than others. Right now, the weather is so hot for anything much to prosper; wait till summer wanes and it should be all systems go again. I'm loving the colour; the flowers are very similar in colour to Salvia, San Carlos Festival - just a little larger. Musk Pink perhaps not quite so intense.

I've a feeling too like many of the salvias that it will sucker some also.

I will make a note to come back to Musk Pink in the Plant Database and add more photos as my main plant responds to more subtle weather pattern. Yes, I know they can take the heat but 40°+C temps holds a lot back a touch.
If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere.
