Debra, even wilted the Moon Vine is lovely
The Lycianthes is also known as Solanum rantonetti if memory serves me correctly. A member of the
same family as Brugs and Daturas and tomatoes A shrubby plant
Your plants all look good Debra.
Nice to see a mother of thousands, I forget how pretty her flowers are.

Pretty bloom Jackie. I like that one too.

Love your basement gardening Debra. Nice to see so many plants.

I have one that has a bloom similar to yours.

This year I'm going to try to grow more salvias. These are just a few of my salvia babies. Not sure when I should start more mgs seeds, maybe middle of Feb?

Helena and Debra, I wonder if you both have a Xiongs blooming? Very pretty blooms, love the color.
Your Salvias look good Helena. I'm very fond of Salvias too.

Helena, you can start your next set of MG's whenever you want to since you g house grow. They would be
blooming by April or maybe before. You could start some every 2 months and always have M Glories
in bloom. Wish I had the time and the energy.

If Xiongs has a varigated leaf, then that is what we have growing and blooming here, Jackie. I love your salvias, hope to start some myself soon.

Not enough time here, either...

Oh how I'm enjoying seeing everyone's blooms. Helena, your Salvia babies look so healthy. I have a weakness for plants in the Mint Family and am fond of Salvias and Agastaches. Years ago when sun-brewed tea was the rage, I had the idea we could flavor ours with sprigs of Spearmint and let the plant loose in our veggie garden. Never again unless it's contained in a pot, and chalked that not-such-a-good-idea experience up to live and learn.

Since I don't have a fresh pic to share, this is a MG I grew in one of my hanging baskets last year.

Thanks Debra. I'll grow more Xiongs this summer.

Gautier, MS

Pretty blooms.

Jackie, I don't think mine is xiongs though it does have solid leaves. The color is not the same as Xiongs. Yesterdays blooms.

These are my other salvia tray. I want to grow as many as I can this year. I grew salvia dreamsicle and Wendy's Wish that I was very pleased with. Then a few others that refused to bloom last year so I hope they do this year.

I hope you'll send pics of your Salvias this summer.Will they bloom this first summer?

I love that multi color blue. It is fantastic. I too love salvias, I have starts of some from cuttings that are going well. I have some seeds, may sow a few of those for fun.
