    359308C8-7187-49FA-BC2D-CA645FFD8208.jpeg Only small right now but I’m liking this salvia amethyst lips. Should make a semi evergreen or even evergreen shrub down here. Related to Hot Lips, apparently, a plant I don’t like but this looks better!:)

                  Gosh!! @wiseowl your 'Glads' are blooming now! Mine are tall but are trailing yours by a good few weeks.

                  Aw!! @lolimac ...so envious....not one single Cleome germinated this year. I always find them a bit fickle but normally get a handful of viable ones. :sad:.

Name escapes me for the moment but it flowers right through to mid October and looks good when aster frikartii monch flowers behind it in a couple of weeks or so

                              A few from me, but taken with my tablet...so colours don't come out as vibrant. And a slight breeze has distorted some pics....they had the wobbles. That's my excuse anyway!:heehee:
