Rose Queen salvia is a pink flowering sage that prefers, like most sages, full sun and good drainage. It works well in either an herb garden or in the combination border. It won't hurt any of your other plants. You should cut back the stems after flowering and you may get another set of blooms later in the year. The only thing I don't like about this particular salvia is that it has a tendency to flop over rather than stand erect.
