Hi Sherry,

I have the 2 Salvia books of Betsy Clebsch and thank you very much for making these lists! I haven't read alot of those 2 books yet, but I'm sure it took alot of reading to come up with the Salvias for each list! I'm going to print out those lists on my computer. ;-))

You're a gem!

You're welcome...I'm afraid that Betsy did all of the work...I just copied her lists. Banana...so many? How about hundreds? You could be collecting for years!

Uh oh! What an addictive "hobby".
I am limited by space...and knowing I will probably move in a few years. It makes me sad to leave all my babies one day. Do you have a favorite shade salvia?

I grow alot of Salvias in containers. I'm in zone 6 and alot aren't hardy for me. I love the red ones esp., (because of the Hummers) and a new favorite that I grew for the first time last Summer is Salvia microphylla 'San Carlos Festival', and I'll never be without it (have to plant it each year, though)! It's not red, but it is so beautiful!!! I love the blue ones too (Salvia 'Black and Blue')!

Here's one of the pics I took last Oct. of it. (actually, I took LOTS of photos of it last year)!

edited to add... the color seemed to me to only deepen and get more beautiful and the season progressed. This was taken on a cool and chilly, cloudy evening on Oct. 22, 06.

edited to add... forgive me for the 'rusty' plant support in the container of Salvias (I threw it away). I only use it for a perch for the Hummers, since they like something to perch on.

Bananna,

Here's the same flower on June 24, 06 in the evening that had sun. Still very beautiful! I'm going to definitely plant this Salvia every year!

Great pictures. I love it's color, flower shape and name! It makes me happy just to say it.
Keep those rusty things. I save them up and then spray paint. There are new ones that have a hammered metal look.
