You got there too quick, Paul, before I had a chance to do the handle!!

It's salvia patens...a keeper, if it's in a nice sheltered spot. :)))

I also have this, but I shan't see it before September!

I don't think it's all that hardy, Cinders. I have to keep re-buying it...but it's cheap, like an annual. :)

September, Karen?!?!

yup, it takes all summer to get warm enough to get it going, then if flowers in Sept. for about a week until the frost kills it!

I think you need to find a good golf-course...toute suite! ;)

They can be lifted and stored like a Dahlia, as they're tuberous.
