One of my favourite salvias I've just ordered serenade variety a bit of a lilac one with dark stems, can never have too many salvias 😍

I have 2 varieties in groups of 3 initially had trouble distinguishing varieties unfortunately. But fairly certain they're East Friesland and Carradona from salvia nemorosa. 💜💜💜 @Keely @suerichards

Me too, they're one of the earliest flowering varieties and will go through whole of summer 💜💜 @lovemygarden65

Excellent planting Mark! Next year your socks will be blown off even further than this year! 😎 Another couple of good ones if you're interested are 'Amethyst' and 'Dear Anja' - roughly six months non stop flowering once established 👌 @solly1961

My favourite Salvia, excellent pollinators. Never seen so many bumblebees in my garden, what a joy. #foliagefriday

Just googled it, looks a stunner, Velvet-like plum-purple petals. Nice.. Looking forward to seeing it when arrives. @midnightgardener

@solly1961 Me too Mark and it's good pairing it with roses. Sarah Raven says under planting it with a Rose keeps black spot away. When I saw it in her brochure I thought it would look great with my Freddie Mercury rose 👑♥️♥️💜💜

Sure would, didn't know that about warding off black spot. But noted. Thanks @midnightgardener
