Can I prune Hot Lips now?
I have a Hot Lips salvia in a planter on my deck, and it did great this spring with tons of blooms, but now it is getting leggy and hanging over the edge of the planter into the walkway on the deck. The stems are probably about 2.5' right now. Can I prune these back so they are not so unsightly? If so, how much can I safely take off? We are on the verge of 90 degree weather right now - not sure if this makes a difference on pruning or not. Thanks for any help you can give!
