I finally got around to planting this bed last year, and one of the plants I chose for this spot was Salvia sclarea 'Piemont' which I got from Annies Annuals. I planted three of these last summer. Only one of them made it through the winter, and the pictures above show what it looks like. This is supposed to be a biennial which sets copious amounts of seed, so I am hoping for lots of little baby salvias. Anyway, I think this plant will make a nice addition to my repertoire of deer resistant, drought tolerant plants.
