Gardening makes me eternally hopefully & forever grateful. It may seem a safe pursuit, but we are all risk takers, gamblers and experimentalist ❤️

That looks really tall, I have one called black and bloom, it is still a baby though, nowhere near the size of yours.

@gerryparsnips mine didn’t over winter so I bought new last summer. But seeing it was still in flower up to October I thought it would die back. But as you can see it hasn’t. So I think I will trim it back and keep my fingers crossed 🤞 @pelly @sadieberg 🙏🏻

@gerryparsnips Jane @pelly has posted her black and blue and I posted black and bloom, maybe it is one of those you are thinking about?

I always take cuttings as I worry about losing them 👍

I love salvias, I had guaranítica black and blue but it didn`t survive the hard winter. This year I am growing salvia microphylla which is hardier.
