I planted 2 of these this summer. The one in full sun has grown more upright & denser, one in partial sun grows more along the ground & has a more "unkept" appearance, so definitely needs full sun. What I have discovered recently is the best part- hummingbirds love them!! They hang around them all day, every day.
I have a few plants of Black and Blue Salvia in my yard. We live in Texas. It is so hot and lot of the things that I have are struggling in this triple digit heat. The Salvia is still going strong. Hummingbirds pay us a visit even though our neighborhood is brand new. These plants were def a great buy. I am very pleased with them and hope to be able to recover some seeds for next season.
