I got some salvias from Rich, this summer..here is one of them..the picture does not do it justice...
My Favorite Salvia (today)
What kind is it? Are the leaves a purple color or is that the pic. It's really lovely. Tell me more!
The name is: Puerta de la Zorra..and yes, the leaves are tinted purple. A lovely plant
And it did well in our summers, is it winter hardy. Seed trade? (it's late and my brain and grammer are lacking)
I think this is a particularly good form of Salvia mexicana. This is difficult to grow in the UK as it is normally ready to flower just as the first frost occurs, and is too tall to move into a small greenhouse.
Did it just start blooming? I don't think I have any Salvia seed but do have some other TX native plant seed.
It started blooming about a week ago..I have some others that have been blooming a lot longer. You should come and get some cuttings...
