Gardeners' Notes:

This is one of the few plants that survived the record heat wave of 2011 in the Dallas TX area and had only been in the ground about 3 months! However, even with frequent watering, it stayed small but continued to bloom constantly. Im hoping next Spring it will take off when its (hopefully) not so hot and dry. I have heavy, black, clay soil.

I love this plant. It comes back every year here. It does very well in Zone 7A. Looks very nice once it starts to bloom. It's very bee friendly. One of my favorite of the hardy salvias.

This plant grows very well for me in zone 5a, even in my heavy clay soil. It has a nice scent to it and the flowers are long lasting. I deadhead it and then it reflowers in the same season, even twice. Doesn't need a lot of maintenance.
