Great banner Marilyn!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thank you @EscondidoCal and @crawgarden for the nice words.

Thank you @bootandall, @needrain, @plantmanager and @zuzu for the thumbsup.

Thank you @Dutchlady1 for the acorn tip.

I got this salvia from Flowers By The Sea in 2013. I loved the gorgeous orange flowers when it finally started blooming in early September of that year. I only got to grow it that one year, since FBTS made it a Special Order plant after that.

Here's the photo that I made the banner with.

Just wondering if you tried to root cuttings when you had it?

@EscondidoCal, no I didn't make any cuttings, since I don't make cuttings.

Thank you @carolem and @GaNinFl for the nice words.

Thank you @CarolineScott, @HamiltonSquare, @KingPlant, @krobra, @pirl, @vic, @Whitebeard and @wildflowers for the thumbsup.

@GaNinFl, The flowers are bright orange, including the bracts, not red.

It's a beautiful plant. It does look more red than orange on my monitor. When I had bad cataracts the reds looked orange to me.

Here's Kermit's, of Flowers By The Sea plant page of Royal with the photos of Royal. I guess my camera didn't get the color perfectly. Sighing! D'Oh! *Blush*

I was in love with every flower that bloomed and drooled over them! Lovey dubby Drooling
