Halloween blooms

The star of my Halloween garden is...... Oceana salvia. It is persisting despite the rain, cold and wind. This salvia is stunning now against the brown leaf piles on the ground. It really looks better now than it has all season. It is truly glowing out there in the back garden. Thankfully I can see it out the back door too. I am going to try a winter protection of heavy straw mulching to see if it will survive the winter. Never have grown this we'll see what next year in the garden brings. Definitely recommended for late season color, as just bout everything else is close to dead.
