  1. Terry, I am no expert on salvias, but your salvia looks very like one of mine. Mine is Salvia Gregii “Blue Note” and it does have very fragrant, even pungent, leaves. I managed to keep it over winter in a cold greenhouse and it has thrown up lots of shoots from below soil level. Judith E


    • Thanks Judith. When I looked on the web the nearest match I could find was “Blue Note”. Everything you say fits. Mine survives over winter in a pot in a sheltered spot and it gets plenty of interest from bees. I cut it right back in spring and it soon grows again.
