      Easy from seed but it is a cool bloomer and needs to be frost free over the winter. One of my favourite Salvia.

                          That looks rather like S.bulleyana. If it produces seed I'd like to try and fail with that one again!

                            Did I send you seed for 'Blue Note'? It could be that.

                              I shall keep an eye open for you. I could try and do you a cutting but I'm not sure if I can as it forms a rosette with the flower stems coming out of it, so cutting material is rather sparse.
