Gardeners' Notes:

Positive philomel On Sep 19, 2005, philomel from Castelnau RB Pyrenes
France (Zone 8a) wrote:

I've planted this in a shady spot as recommended by Betsy Clebsch in the New Book of Salvias. It has really taken off and made woody bottom growth in its first season. A very showy, if somewhat sprawly plant. In the right place it will look outstanding

Positive Azalea On Apr 4, 2004, Azalea from Jonesboro, GA (Zone 7b) wrote:

This is a very fast growing tender perennial. I was told that it would not be hardy in my zone 7b, so I took cuttings in the fall. Now here in late March I see that it is coming back from the old roots.

This plant gets very tall, about 5' an may need staking. If pruned it will produce more branches and flowers. It roots very easily in water, faster than coleus.


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

Satsuma, Alabama
Jonesboro, Georgia
