I couldn't remember what days in April I requested for my shipping date. I was going to message Kermit today to
check, but I got too busy. They were on the doorstep when I got back from the bank. These are all new to me. I
think I picked some pretty good ones. I ordered salvia greggii Dark Dancer, salvia Windwalker, Betsy's Choice,
Blue Ensign ( I think it is Steve who has a beautiful patch of these), salvia rubescens subsp. dolichothrix, Mulberry
Jam, and 2 scarlet spires.

Sounds like you got some nice plants, have heard a lot about dark dancer never had it though. My blue ensign is just starting only about 3" above ground black and blue shorter than that but eventually will get some size to it.

That's why I ordered Blue Ensign, because of your pictures. I'm wondering if these plants do well in full sun, or light
shade. I mostly have full sun in front and back. There are a few areas of light shade.

Had to google a couple, Linda. Sounds like some goodies. Scarlet Spires is I know & Steve's Blue Ensign is always very nice looking. Good luck & happy planting.

My blue ensign are in full sun but would most likely do ok in some shade as long as they get some sun.
