This Is a home I moved from over 10 years ago, got this shot just before a snow storm ended the season. I donít remember the name of these beautiful Silvia plants. I just ran across this picture and a bag of seeds I had stashed away.
I would collect the seeds and replant every year, on a quiet evening you could even hear the seed heads popping.
The plants shown are full grown and the leaf was a deep green almost looked like a bush the hummingbirds loved them.
Over the last three weeks I have tried several different methods to see if the seeds will germinate but no luck, Looks like I need to order some.
Yeah, those do look like they are pushing four feet tall. My first thought was Salvia penstemonoides, which can reach 5 to 6 feet tall, but the flowers are more of a purple-red. I think you are correct, Tim.
