      This is a cutting from last autumn that has been in a cold greenhouse. The parent is outside and this winter hasn't lost it's leaves, however no flowers.

        Hi @NigelJ - do you find it hardy in normal winters as well? I assume you keep the greenhouse one for insurance...

        @CarolineL Salvia corrugata is not particularly hardy, it will only take a light frost and really needs a cold greenhouse.
        For the first couple of years I did that, then autumn 2018 I took some cuttings and left the parent plant outside, it was fine until we had a couple of frosts in February 2019 when it lost all it's leaves and didn't flower until last November. This year has been so mild it's still got all it's foliage and will hopefully flower mid summer.
