In lower zone 8 if a salvia on the label when bought says it grows 3 foot
here it grows close to 5 foot tall..same in width.
I am looking at the perennial red Darcyi salvia which it seems to grow way
taller and wider in the southern states than it states on sellers sites
it might get to 5 foot tall and 7 foot wide and they say 3 foot by 3 foot
on seller sites..

Is there any red perennial salvia other than Furmans red and autumn sage in the greggi
woody family that grows in the south well and does not take the entire flower bed over..
I need red salvias long blooming for an area no more than 4 foot wide when full grown..
and same in height...4 foot..

anyone grown San Carlos salvia or Daryci perennial red salvias..tell me the full grown width and height
yours got to..

Do you know a bright blue vivid that stands out the bloom color in the hot south, afternoon shade
here morning sun..but hot summers that makes a great show of blue blooms?
Stands erect?
this is my flower bed, I have trellis with 9 clematis, iris and daylillies and two red greggi woody small growing red salvias..and some coneflowers..the bed looks empty here as I had just trimmed and pulled out some beautiful but HUGE black and blue perennial salvia that over took the entire bed..they grew 7 foot by 7 foot wide in one summer but were awesome in blooms and stood up erect well most of the time

thank you
