Garden Answers (UK) - - Problems Solved -

JACKIE TYSON, BY EMAIL A This is shrubby salvia ‘Hot Lips’, which can be semi-evergreen in mild cli­mates. It’s hardy in a shel­tered, sunny spot and can flower al­most all year, es­pe­cially in coastal ar­eas. It ben­e­fits from prun­ing in spring to keep it com­pact. The flow­ers are typ­i­cally red and white but the colour can vary ac­cord­ing to the tem­per­a­ture, from all white to all red.
