Love this salvia grows just as well in full sun as it does in our shady wood, and the bees love it :-)))

I'll collect you some seed if you like Amy, collecting some for Dawn from all my salvias so could send you some mixed seed if you like, be autumn time though before they all finish :-)) remind me if I forget, terrible memory :-))
Glad you're enjoying the Turkestanica I have a bud coming on one of the white ones!!!

Yours is much brighter blue than ours, different soil perhaps?

Beautiful Kathy. Mine are teasing me and staying in bud. When they are out I'll be asking you for ID's :)

Could be DD, we have quite heavy clay, especially so in the bed where this is planted.
This is earlier than the ones in the wood Dawn they are still buds too.
Not heard of that one Meanie, sounds interesting, off to google :-)
