Salvia wagneriana

Elk, CA(Zone 9a)

My current "favorite" Salvia. Both the pink and white bract forms are in full bloom now, despite two nights when it dipped below 25 degrees F. And holding up well in our first Pacific Northwest mega-storm of the year.

Just thought to share this on a Winter day.

Kermit, is the white bracted form from the U C Berkeley Botanical Garden? I've attached a scan of mine. Note the tips of the leaves just below the bracts. In this form, the leaves gradually change shape as they change into bracts, not only changing their edges, but veination and even having mottled variegation. At least, that is the case for me in North Carolina. Do you see the same effects where you are?

I believe so, Richard. And yes, the white shows up below the bracts in a variable fashion.

I am hand pollinating flowers of this one, hooping for seed. We'll grow out to flowering 100% of them - I want to see what sort of variation there will be.
