Ah! Busy. I practise the Chelsea chop on mine. And in mid summer I cut back by a third or so. So many flowers that it isn't noticed but it makes for a sturdier late summer and autumn plant. I disagree......not too tall and with real impact. Mine have stood up to winds and rain without being spoiled. Amistad has a rich quality of flower that few other salvias have .
Very long growing season here too producing lush growth ....cutting back therefore is important
