Mulberry jam has fantastic flower colour, bright pink, but unfortunately in my experience growing it and compared to all other salvias i have, its not a very floriferous plant, only producing a couple of flowers on each plant. Even a group of them isnt that impressive as the flowers are so sparse. Mine also seem to have a tall and gangly habit with a tendency to flop or lean over.
Salvia involucrata Bethellii is similar to mulberry jam and from what ive seen is a better, more impressive plant (although slightly more tender).
