I absolutely love this. My mum has it in her garden. Can I take cuttings from it? @ellenmarygardening . 😊

Pretty! I sowed these to late here so sadly there is none. Or maybe it's been to dry. 🙂

I love these too! They give lasting pleasure through the summer months. I must say I am loving the flowering sage revival - so many pretty varieties this year 😀
