Here is my S. splendens "Dancing Flames"
Now that I live in Florida....
I love Salvia - I bought some hot lips too, but it seems tippy. Is that normal? Also, does anyone know if salvia comes back in Atlanta? I saved my pineapple and scarlet sage from last year, but no signs of regrowth.
Looks like Pineapple Sage is hardy to zone8 ... depending on if you had a really brutal winter... it may come back for you. Could be a late riser.
The scarlet sage... I do not know about.
Sorry -- I don't know what you mean by "tippy".
I think I had Hotlips before .... though I've always lived in zone4-5, so I've never had salvias come back for me before.
Dancing Flames is such a beautiful plant! I grow several different kinds of salvia and im lucky to have almost all of them come back each year. My baby sage is blooming now! :)
I'll give it another month. The hot lips I have in a pot and it is so tall the pot tips over in a windstorm. I guess I just need to get it in the ground.... Thanks all.
Mine did very well once planted in the ground. no shock whatsoever. It sits in the scorching sun probably 8hrs a day and no wilting either.
