Salvia x Raspberry Delight

My Salvia x Raspberry Delight has wintered over outdoors again, this time with no winter protection. It's just starting to make new growth near the base. Yesterday I moved it away from my foundation where it just didn't look right. It's now in a different bed with other hummingbird plants.

Raspberry Delight is a good choice for the north isn't it? Ken and eye took his hedge trimmer to the salvia yesterday, the Raspberry Delight had green leaves to almost 3 feet. They have survived through winters cold and mild for eleven years now with hardly a plant lost. A very good run.

It (or it's seedlings) did well for me for quite a few years along with 'Maraschino'.
