Yvonnes Salvia

I was just wondering how many people are growing this and how they did.
I got a late start on everything I planted this year but am pleased with the results. The salvia seed I received from Emily did well and grew about 3 feet tall. The humming birds loved them and I'm in the process of collecting seed. I'm hoping I will have enough to share but I don't know right now. I will post on the seed exchange if I do.

Good seeing you post Jim.
My Yvonne's Salvia never got that tall, had one about 3 ft winter over and the seedlings are now ab 20 in tall and starting to bloom, guess being in the containers affects their size, but they are beautiful, hummers love 'em along with other salvia.


RE: Yvonnes Salvia

now that i know what it is, LOL mine so far are about that tall, but has been covered up by that darned ol lilac le fleur datura and white angels trumpet. i didn't think they would take over, or else i think they would have been taller. LOL
i winter sowed them, and the markings got faded, wrong marker. i did collect some seeds, and i think i will be able to collect some more!! i LOVE this plant!! LOL it wasn't big enough when the hummers were here though, it sure will be next year!! :') ~Medo
