We're having a great winter so far...lots of El Nino rains, everything is fresh and green and thriving. It's been mild so far, everything is in lush spring growth and I'm so tempted to want to start cutting everything back, but will make myself wait a couple of weeks anyway. Never know what February may bring. I'm out weeding and I seem to have a bunch of s. lemmonii volunteers. All of my salvias are interplanted. Are there any known crosses of s.lemmonii? Can I expect it to breed true? Love volunteers! Thanks for any info...

Well, my successful introductions Raspberry Royale and Plum Wine are S. lemmonii hybrids with Texas greggiis.

Good...I love surprises. I need to go out and see what's coming up around my other salvias...
