For some reason my not so old Amistad, not this one but last year's, didn't come back. Very odd 🤔💜💜

Your older one could have been frosted. They need some protection in very cold weather 🤔

I must admit mine are a bit hit and miss but I do seem to succeed with Salvias for some reason 🤔

@pelly I haven't even tried to take any cuttings for a while but, I need to and see what results I get. I probably did it wrong before 🤔

I've got about four flower spikes on this great plant. I couldn't love my Salvias anymore than I do 😊😊💜💜
