Grew this from seed this year. Some plants had very insignificant flowers, and some were very dramatic. I hope it winters over, but will save seed from the dramatic ones only!

A small compact salvia that can take some shade and blooms year-round in my climate. It was very easy to start from seed and bloomed the first year.
