Just got one and looking to find out what I can expect from it.
I have it in a big pot for now, but hoping to make a few cutings so I can have several for a new bed I'm planning for next spring.

to me its like a small groundcover as opposed to a regular plant. It just crawls in the same area year after year. about 1 foot or so tall and maybe 3 feet round.

This is my third year with Salvia sinaloensis. I have it planted on a slight slope on a east facing bed. I agree with Skrip as it has stayed in the same area except for a little underground creeping to the surrounding area. From a four inch pot until now it is maybe 2 1/2 feet in diameter. It doesn't bloom as much as I would like but the foliage looks good year round. The low growth and low maintenance makes it a great plant for the front corner of my bed.

Yeah, depending on your shade/sun conditions, it will affect the color of the foliage from purple to green. The blue color of the blooms is one of the best tru-blues out there. Problem is the blooms are small and as Chargreen mentions, it doesnt bloom enough!
