I like it. Mine is recovering from damage but not flowers back yet. I have it now in the pot and rethinking my plans for it.

Thanks Klahanie, do the deers and rabbits eat the whole plant then flowers and all, must be frustrating but guess you get used to it :-)

I am experimenting with different plantings, Daylily. Sometime deer will eat only flowers like on daylilies but this one was all gone. Which surprised me as they do not eat another salvia. But, it has lots of new growth now. Deer will not come up stairs and there is always room for another plant on our deck. It is a learning experience.

Certainly looks like a good value plant for the smaller garden, long flowering period, easy going, into favs.

I've found Salvia Carradonna a good one also, but that's a taller one about 3ft, the bees love it too :-)
