Salvia Royal Bumble

I've taken mine right back to the lowest leaves but not sure that's what should be done.

I'm not a proper gardener, I do as I like 

We haven't had a killer winter for several years now have we.

Holly - yellowing leaves with spots

How many leaves are affected. Have you a photo of the plant.

Holly, as all evergreens, doesn't keep its leaves forever. Old ones turn yellow and drop off and new ones grow. A treatment would be feeding to encourage the new growth.

Can I add Salvia jamensis to the confusion? It probably arose as a seedling and could be confusion re mummy/daddy.No idea myself.

It's a shrubby one and does seem to come through winter well, though mine was in a cold GH for the middle of winter. I've now planted it out, cut it back and it's looking better than any of the others. 

I shall be interested to see its offspring which are all over the place.

whatever you like, it's your garden. I prefer a little more character and diversity in my garden.

I thought the Phlomis was called Jerusalem Sage. and I thought Russian Sage was Perovskia. But that's probably why I don't use common names 

ID Please
