Looking for SALVIA INVOLUCRATA, Rosebud sage. If you have any seeds, PLMK. I have some salvia seeds that I could exchange.
If you still want to grow this plant, I would be happy to send you some cuttings you could root, or maybe even a new shoot that has come up. My plant is at least 6' tall and has long, arching stems with flowers on the end. I planted it about 2 years ago and it comes back every year. The flowers are so unusual, as you know! I'm in Louisiana and we have long, hot summers,but the plant does great every summer!
dalaray, do you still have cuttings to share? I'm interested.
