Salvia microphylla (Salvia microphylla)

This is a cutting that I took last year. Been outdoors for a couple of weeks so the flowers are a nice surprise!

I thought of you today Meanie when I put my Salvia x jamensis 'Raspberry Royale' outdoors from the Greenhouse ... have a cutting rooting too.

Thanks Waddy!

Shirley - I had to check that one out. It's a gem!
I planted a couple out last w/end - Wendys Wish and Black Knight. They were in a sheltered spot all winter so I figured that they'll have seen the worst of the winter. At least I know that they can take a frost now.

Keith - I have just read up on Wendy's Wish, interesting that an Aussie gardener named Wendy Smith developed it in 2005 ... and Black Knight is a gorgeous violet shade ... enjoy them both.

Wendys Wish is a prolific bloomer and carried on well into December. Black Knight was just a small cutting last year so it was rather late (hopefully).

It's a bit more red in the flesh - just not a good photo.
All the tuberous ones outdoors appear to be coming back DD. But some of the seedlings that I have coming along have the potential to really be WOW plants!

Look forward to seeing the pics then....
