I bought" Hot Lips" yesterday.A bargain at £1.50 at my gardening club.It's very leggy,about 2 ft tall and I'm wondering if it would be a good idea to cut it back now.Would appreciate advice on how to look after her.Thanks

I love my Hot lips! I cut it back as and when I think it needs it, I have no idea if it is correct but it thrives.

Hiya folks

Good time to cut it back now......I would do it part way though to encourage more side branches. If it was 6 weeks ago I would cut it back to a few inches.  

A good watering initially amd feed and sun and it will flower all summer.  Sometimes with all white flowers, sometimes with all red flowers and sometimes with red and white flowers.

A hardy, woody, shrubby tough almost evergreen salvia.
