Mines moved from the greenhouse into the garden now ,no flowers yet though as I cut it back a bit before planting .
First flowers open on my Royal Bumble though grown from seed this year sent by Dawn :-)

This, plus the 2 little ones did fine over the winter outside here. My Pineapple Sage lost all its leaves but is resprouting from near the base, will grow into a much bigger plant,but not so hardy.

I grew pineapple sage for a few years here but it never started flowering till just before the first frosts so hardly saw any flowers,gave its place to something else :-)
This year I'll leave hot lips outside and take a few cuttings quite a few other sages are fine here so it should be, just thought it might be a shock its first year here but in the end it was a mild winter :-)

Wow Kathy, that's soon flowering, they're more like an annual, aren't they. No flowers on my plants grown from seed yet. If you get some seed from hot lips, it would be good to have some ?. Did I send you seed from the cerise pink one too?

June 3rd, absolutely masses of flowers now, all red, not complaining, just an observation.

How strange but like you say great plants anyway.

Last year there were white, red and red and white flowers on the plant at the same time.

Oh my

Strange isn't it, wonder if it is related to length of day light, not temperature surely, that has been up and down.

Very odd, but eventually you have 'hot lips' in its entirety.
