Salvia "Hot Lips"


By Meanie

Salvia "Hot Lips" (Salvia x jamensis)

Another newbie this year.
Supposed to be a little tender, but seeds freely apparently.

Makes a good plant, kept mine for 3 years but lost it this winter :-( Sometimes has all red or all white flowers depending on the time of year. Never had any seedlings come up though.

Amazing the "info" that you can find on the web!
This was a stem cutting from a friend, so I'll go down that route just in case......

Meanie, I collected the seeds from last years. The plants are still a wee bit small, think I seeded them a bit late.
