Thanks from me, too - who knew the salvias could be such a great source of "silvers" for the garden? And a partially shaded, horribly humid one to boot, as S. chamaedryoides proved to be a few summers ago for us in Maryland. I wonder how S. beesbliss, S. canariensis & S. thymoides would do under these conditions?

Risingcreek, have you seen the following lists posted a few years ago in this forum? - - salvias for hot/humid conditions - shade tolerant salvias

Richard, thanks again.

kc, there was a coop with Richard and his sages this past summer that I missed, but they are hoping that after Christmas they can work with him on another coop for next spring. You might want to dmail him for more information - there is an aspect that offers a unique learning experience about sages.

Richard, apologies for talking about you as a third person. I just joined and can't resist enabling another enthusiast. I hope you'll be able to give this coop another go after Christmas with Mamajack.

>> What is a coop?

A co-operative purchase, where several people agree to split the cost of some batch of somehting. They share the expense. A group purchase. I think it happens most often for "plugs", where the cheapest way is to buy entire trays of just one variety.

Then one person makes the bulk purchase and gets a price break. Then she has to divide the stuff and re-mail it out to everyone. (The cost of postage makes it hard to come out ahead!)

DG has a forum for that, and last time I looked, there were some specific rules:

I think the last co-op that Richard had was on the cubits website. I do not know if he does it on this one, too.
