I can't remember re the blue one Richard but I should be able to find out. It's at Kathy Browns's garden in Bedfordshire, where some of us visited last year. She gave me the piece of Vince D. The yellow one is probably Sundance which she also gave me but I failed to keep alive.
I'll email that pic top Kathy and ask.
These little flowers please me much more than the large flowered hybrids
That's nice Richard, I like a thug
Is it related to this one, 'Vince Denny' ? (the one in the middle), I can see similarities
I've got a piece of that coming along nicely, not in the ground yet
Cut some of the older stems back to base, do the rest next year or the year after. If you cut all the stems back by half you'll have a shapeless blob in a few years
lol, seen this one before elsewhere
lol fidget, there are two of these threads, same answer from me on the other one.
this can't be reproduced from seed, it's a cultivar, can only be reproduced from cuttings or division. If you find seed it won't produce Salvia 'Armistad'. It may produce something like it, or it may not
I'll wear it with pride ladybird
My guess is that this is the species V. opulus, the native Guelder Rose. Not a cultivar

I can't agree there ladybird, opulus has lobed leaves as in Vivien's pic, plicatum has simple ovate leaves
