Two South American Labiates that are set to brighten the borders for autumn are the sturdy and felty Salvia corrugata and the more spindly S. meyeri. Both with whorls of blue flowers making ideal pollinator plants attracting a wealth of insects to their inflorescence. Easily propagated by taking cuttings of semi ripe growth allowing rooting before overwintering in a protected environment.
