Tubers on Black and Blue salvia (pic)

AndreaZn7(z7 MD)February 11, 2008

Hi all,

I grew a Black & Blue Salvia last year which I

left in the ground in my zone 7 garden. I was recently

cleaning the garden patch where the salvia is located.

I pulled out the B&B salvia and it came up with tubers

on the root zone.



Is this normal? Does this mean that the plant will resprout

in the spring?

TIA.

Oh yes!! You can also seperate these tubers and make new plants. It does spread like crazy in soft soil.

Mine is already sprouting here in southeast Alabama. I would love to give lots of it away if someone lived close enought to come get it.

Mimidi,
That's great news! The cutting I took inside died so
I look forward to this resprouting in the spring.
Thanks for the response.

Mimidi,
How long before your B&B's usually flower?

I don't really know. I am sure there will be blooms in May. I need to go back and check pictures of my flowers and see if I can give you a better answer.

Apparently I have done away with my picture files and can't find the time they start blooming for me.
