I just moved to the tropics and am in search of tropical species of Salvia to grow from seed.
A lot of salvias love the tropics and adapt, I also live smack in the middle of the tropics, what r u chasing, i have seeds of fluviatalis,caymanensis,madrensis,subrotunda, coccineas in all shades, and lots of others, lmk.
Thanks for your email....I am chasing pretty much anything that is showy...sorry to be so vague. I am in new territory here as I am pretty unfamiliar with this climate....80 to 85 F everyday with about 80 to 100 inches of rain a year. If I lived in a perfect world I would love to get gravida and dombeyi. May have to get cuttings on those two from the mainland US.
OOOPS....I guess it would help if I told you what I already have seed of....'Yvonne', 'Tequila', karwinskii, and 'Tall Peach'. I have seen leucantha and guaranitica 'Black and Blue' in the nurseries over here. Thanks again!!
I have seed of the macrophylla x sagittata (some come true and others throw different colours),I have 'Helen Dillon' which is more purpley and grows to 6ft tall and a few others send me your addie and I will send some various seeds to play with. I think I have some iodantha seed collected as well........
