@kez001uk I think I must've had this two years or more. It looks really good from the house, I can see it without opening the doors. It's spread out. The best flowering plant I've got. Thank you so much for the Apricot Lemonade seeds. What a nice surprise 😁♥️♥️

@midnightgardener that’s some size for a couple of years! I’m new to salvias really but they seem like a great addition to any garden! And they smell good too 😋 you’re welcome for the seeds 😁

The rest of my Hot Lips is white but as you can see this one is super bright red! It's part of the same plant as the now, white one - I checked. A few surprises in my garden recently 😊😊💋💋❤❤

@pelly First time I've noticed it. It stands taller and prouder than the rest of the plant. That's why I checked it was one and the same 😊😊

I’ve taken cuttings of hot lips from my nieces garden. Can’t believe how quickly they rooted and how much they have grown. Having to nip off new flowers!

@joanboston Incredible. As they're quite woody do they not need rooting powder? I really need to take some cuttings 😊😊

I used softer side shoots and never use rooting powder Christine
