I like the salvia, Verdun. very pretty. I see it is Australian raised. How hardy is it?
I took cuttings off Amistad. They are now a foot high and coming into flower.
I thought the original plant had died, but shoots are coming from below ground. I will leave them,see if it flowers before winter.
I will certainly make sure I have plenty of cuttings of it this year.
The only one that really survived winter well, and is now flowering is Hot lips. It came into flower a few days before the cuttings did. African skies has buds, but the original died, as did most of the other "hardy" salvias that I had as a 10 cutting job lot, last year.
