That makes it so much prettier. I faithfully have my one feeder but they love the Esperanza and Pride of Barbados (oh my I’m sending you those seeds). So pretty to have color in the winter

Beautiful! Can you use this plant like regular sage, or thyme?

@FieryJude I know it's grown as an ornamental. Nectar plant for butterflies, hummigbirds, and bees. This variety is in the mint family, more research would need to be done if you wanted to use it in food ☺

Now that you've mentioned that @treefrog44 Theresa, it sure do remind me of "The Little Mermaid" scene with Ursula grabbing a piece of sea flower for lipstick and it looks sooooo similar!
