Ah thanks Jan 👍🏼 yours is definitely darker than mine - mine has more of a blue tinge to it. The stems are dark green but not as dark as yours. Steve's @lamaisonbleueoleron friend on IG says he thinks it called Blue Enigma and I've googled it and it does look more likely! Who knows? Maybe it'll get a bit darker 🤔 thank you for your help 😘

Mine are hardy (Mystic Spires) but I think some are half hardy so it depends. Mine are still flowering like mad so I haven't done anything yet. Think I will leave it in its pot but put it in a sheltered spot just in case 😀 yes great minds Jan 😂

Jan, I would take cuttings as a security. I've just taken some and hope they survive the winter fingers cross. https://www.rhs.org.uk/Plants/307058/i-Salvia-i-Amistad-sup-(PBR)-sup/Details more info for you. I would add some good mulch to protect the roots durning it's first winter👍👌 good choice 😎

Thank you Jan. He is much better. I think the cold and rain has helped keep the swelling down too. Thank you for asking.
