I have a very hardy variety of salvia growing along our driveway. I don't know what variety it is. I got it from our amazing gardening neighbor a number of years ago. I have a patch of it in the back yard too, and am getting some started on the other side of our driveway along the edge of the forest. It has already started blooming. The bees and butterflies love this salvia. It gets quite tall. I often have to cut off some along the driveway edge because it flops out onto the concrete. By mid-summer, my wonderful husband often says, "I feel like I'm driving through the salvia when I pull into the driveway." It gets tall enough he sees it just outside is full size truck's window. I deadhead it often to keep more blooms coming. In the fall, I cut down the foliage so I can see the daffodils in the spring that grow in this bed too. It resprouts fine and self seeds. I often have to pull out extra plants in areas where I don't want it. Like in the cracks of the driveway.
