Hot Lips Salvia - not Flowering

11 years ago

Last summer I bought a Hot Lips Salvia plant. It did very well. Lots of flowers. This year it has had very little flowers on it. Doed anyone have any advice? The plant itself is growing very nicely. It's at least a foot tall and has lots of green leaves. Was I supposed to cut it back at some point? All the leaves on the plant died last winter but the old stems got new leaf growth so I didn't cut it back. Was I supposed to cut it? It is in full sun. I have not added fertilizer because I read that you were not supposed to add additional fertilizer. My hummingbirds really would like to see flowers on this plant. Any advice? Thanks!!!
