Thank you thank you thank you. I've been trying to remember the name. I have some at at m&d. Can you eat it? I have a funny feeling it's native salvia.

@latebloomer @Sussanah thank you It's funny how sometimes you just get red flowers and also just white but this colouring is the best. Not sure if you can eat it. I have never tried.

I'm afraid to cut it back. I was told no more than 20%. It's very straggly looking.
