Wow! This salvia came a long way! The best $1 I ever spent at Lowe's on the clearance rack months ago! With TLC & water (it was so dried up when I bought it), it has flourished! I love to watch the chunky bumble bees 🐝 on it! It's their favorite in my garden ❤️

I'm giving this to my Mom when I see her. Got it for $1 on reduced plant rack at Lowe's today. It just needed water and looks fine.

I know @Acetaker 😁. Since this pic it has produced huge purple blooms! It's better suited for her larger garden where it can really flourish ❤️

This one was the only one of it's kind left on the reduced plant rack at Lowe's. It didn't even look bad at all. I got it for my Mom who lives about 2 hours away in Palm Coast Florida near St. Augustine. I'm going to go visit her next month.

My Mom lives nearly 2 hours away in Palm Coast Florida (near St. Augustine). She has so many plants waiting for me to bring home 😂. Her garden is much bigger. I've been planning spots for all the upcoming additions Lol. @columbiariver

That's so nice. My mom was/is my greatest inspiration. I'm excited for you.

@columbiariver thank you 😊... she has a golden flame Honeysuckle for me, a shrimp plant, canna lilies, oxalis from my Nanny's garden (my Mom's mother)... clippings from other plants too... I love gardening as much as my Mom & her Mom (my Nanny... Nanny passed many years ago when she was 85).

Very nice. My mom and my Aunt Lorna sound a lot like your Mom and your Nanny. It's wonderful to inherit the love of gardening.
