I'm hoping by planting this in the ground, that it will survive our zone 6 Winter. Found this at a local Nursery.

I love the paleness of this Salvia color.

I grow this plant in a container in full sun. I like it...it's light yellow colored flowers are a nice break from the usual blue's and red's of most salvia's. Some of the other yellow salvia's I have like part shade to shade, Moonlight is the opposite and does best in full sun.
