17/07/19 - so here’s a much nicer picture, not riddled with virus! bought this at my local garden club Plant sale last year as a salvia, described as having pale blue flowers... but it didn’t quite look like a salvia, then for a while I thought it was a coleus as the foliage was lime green and reminded me of one of the rodeo drive varieties, but then it flowered this week and it’s neither of those and is actually a Plectranthus! And a very pretty one at that, the stems and leaf veins have gone a
I love this Richard. I love blues in a garden! You're in a gardening club? Gosh I wish we had one here I'd definitely go. You can always learn something from others and swap or buy plants? Is that what happens @richard.spicer.7906 😊😊💙💙
It’s great Christine, I love it. quite lucky i have a local garden club. I belong to @mhsstalbans . My friend @gerryparsnips is also a member and we’ve been trying to convince some of our other colleagues to join in on the GT fun too. We have plant sales, talks, coach trips throughout the year. And in August Gerry and I will be competing in our new annual plant growing competition 😄 - all members were given a free pelargonium to grow and it will be judged at our summer party @midnightgardener
Already sorted @clipperty - I kinda knew it would be your sort of plant. I’d took a few cuttings last year worried I’d lose it over winter, but it survived (in the polytunnel though) and all the cuttings took 😂
Mystery Salvia that I bought at garden club, just described as having pale blue flowers. However it hasn’t flowered yet, and the foliage has gone an amazing lime green colour and stems/veins have gone purple. I’m secretly hoping it might be ‘Black and Blue’ (which is far from pale blue) but anyone any thoughts what Salvias might have these dark stems/light foliage?
