Painted Sage

Posted: 01/05/2015 at 21:55

I had to google painted sage, I can't remember what we called them when I was a kid but it wasn't that.

Salvia horminum, have I got the right one? Sunny patch, well drained, I think they're hardy. You won't find them in garden centres, I think they're best sown direct. You could sow some when these frosty might are over and the rain comes. Plenty soon enough. Collect and save some seed for next year

Cinquefoil? Potentilla reptans?

That's one of my weeds

Green alkanet is Pentaglossis sempervirens. I don't think it's a dye plant.

The difference between a tree paeony and a herbaceous one is wood. The herbaceous disappears completely for winter, the tree paeony keeps a woody framework like the tree/shrub that it is. one metre is quite small for a tree paeony.

PS. A small plant might be as cheap as a packet of seed, it would set seed and you'd have it forever

When the acorns fall off the tree, pick some up, sow them, can't fail.

I don't think now is the right time though. Hard to find the acorns.

I've abandoned Dixter//Fireglow or whatever I had. It wandered and died out in patches. Not a stunner  but would have been good in flower if it had spread out and left gaps in the middle.
