Smaller could be Rigida or Homestead Purple. The latter is lower and spreading. Rigida is quite invasive. There is also a dwarf version of bonariensis called lollipop
Is it currently in the ground B3?
anyway, you can chop it in half or quarters and do it now. Use a sharp serrated knife or saw. Plant out, clay is fine
GD, the best way is to get someone to give you a piece of theirs. i divide after flowering and they flower again following summer without hiccup
any friends locally growing them?
Bit tender joyce
I guess we are the same GD......absolutely glorious. Never too hot for gardening but nothing really to do .
Those that do will exhaust themselves to death like euryops, bowles mauve, etc.
sorry Joyce....more haste less speed. Meant to write S. Leucanthemum as in salvia
If you see roots...make sure the roots are from all the cuttings and not just one...you can pot on. It wouldnt matter if they werent potted on but I do pot on. Don't be too eager; waiting an extra week or so can make a difference
wouldn't keep any cuttings for much longer outside apart from hard wood cuttings. ONLY the hardwood cuttings outside though
To show height of this salvia, I am 6' 1" and this is towering over me
