I didn’t realise the leaves would remain, what an extra bonus to a long flowering salvia❤️ #foliagefriday

Salvia's are really good plants to add to a border, for the reasons you stated, plus the get better with age, just need a haircut once a year after flowering

Ah my other one which gets less hours of sun has lots of white, where is yours positioned?

It's in the sun all day, not sure what's happened and yours looks like it has lots more leaves than mine, do you think I should give it a chop back??? 🌞🤔🌞

comment
Denise16

This ones in the sun all day too. I did chop it back last autumn so that is a possible reason. Or maybe depends which soil type it's in. Not that I know my soil type🙈 @sieveheadsarah

Thanks @Denise16 I think I'm going to chop it a few inches tomorrow and see what happens and then maybe move it next spring, I can but try. 🌞😀🌞

Is it still flowering? I wonder whether to wait until later in the year after growing season. Or if you do let me know how it goes 🤗
