Another purchase from my cousin's wholesale nursery - I had no idea this was going to grown in to such a monster! That bud is as big as my hand!! 🌸✋

Oh have you? @joanboston I shall be coming to you for advice!! Does it over winter? Guessing by the name it's a member of the sage family so hoped it would.. I had to add it to the gardentags encyclopaedia so guessing it's unusual!?

It's new to this garden, but had it in our old garden it didn't overwinter but self sowed a little. We are in northeast England so winters are cold. It may fare better further south @carolecuttingitfine
