Salvia - Texas Red Sage

dave_k_gwSeptember 11, 2012

I've had a Salvia Furman's Red, and Maraschino blooming for a couple of months. Both plants are new this year. Both are producing seed. I don't know if either will survive my zone 5 winter, but I plan to save some seed for next spring. I placed tiny cuttings from each a couple of inches from my foundation, with the idea of giving the roots a little warmth. All seem to be taking.

I don't know about your Salvia, but I successfully overwintered Salvia 'Black & Blue' in the garage last winter. Although it might have even survived outside, since we had a relatively mild winter.

I've got some glads growing up next to the house foundation, which are also about zone 7 hardy, and they survive even the cold winters in that location (although they don't bloom every year, not sure why).
