Very pretty indeed. The slugs ate mine.
I went to Sp Plant nursery...no foxgloves and no Blackcurrant Salvia :(

Nice...I've tried growing some from seed. Most of them germinated but died back when they were a couple of inches.

I will hide them in the greenhouse where the thermustat is under the benches, so that is where all the warmth is!

Motinot - the bloom on this is quite close to that of its cousin Bomerrea, which I have coming along for next year.
