These are fabulous. An airy plant with continuous long-lasting flowers. I did have a problem with the original delivery and these were replaced immediately with not fuss.

I love this plant. it survived the drought despite being its first year planted. The colour is so rich and I'm hoping it survives the winter in IOW.I do plan on mulching it. The service, as always was first class, plants were well packed and healthy..

I love this plant & the colour works really well in my garden. I was worried it wouldn't survive here but it's getting stronger.

The plants were a lot smaller than I’d expected when they arrived. However they’ve flowered beautifully over the summer months and are still continuing now. An absolute delight!

I bought one last year and more this year. Beautifully healthy plants arrived. They are thriving and appear to have helped control blackspot on one of my roses.
I don't know if these were from a different grower to the Baptista, but they are lovely.

I planted these in the wrong place so they struggled with being overshadowed. I know what to do with these lovely plants next year.

Lovely colour but rather a weedy plant, slow to get going and despite watering not as thick and bushy as other salvias so sparser flowers. Hoping it will overwinter in greenhouse and be stronger next year.

they were slow to get going --- planted them with roses as suggested--- have produced flowers but are very straggly and thin-- I hoped for compact bushy plants
