A good plant in excellent condition that will survive the winter planted now. The root system was well established and the plant is very good value for money. My one disappointment is that it was incorrectly labelled, which could confuse some people, not that familiar with Salvias. The plant was labelled 'Salvia officinalis white' but I'm satisfied that it is "Salvia greggii 'Alba'",
