I have so many cuttings that have rooted this year that I am going to put some in containers for my deck.lets hear a response as to how your's did in containers.
I put my annuals & some smaller salvias in containers: Salvia splendens,coccinea, elegans,farinacea, forskaohlei,horminium, sinaloensis & sclarea.
These from Africa work well in containers, they have interesting foliage;
S. africana-lutea (S. aurea)
These are from Western Asia;
S. canescens v. daghastanica
Of course many will work in a container. For some species you would need a LARGE container.
Please excuse the ignorance here, but do these bloom all summer long? What about Salvia patens?
I've seen Salvia in lots of planters at shopping/rec centres, but I only seem to see them when they are blooming!
Jan (who's trying Salvia for the first time this year! :-D )
Some do, some don't bloom all summer.
Some bloom in spring, some in summer, some in fall and some even in winter with protection where needed.
Oh! and then there are those that bloom from spring to frost.
The smaller sizes do well in ample containers -- I'm not sure about ones that get quite large.
"Oh! and then there are those that bloom from spring to frost."
Well, that sounds good for containers (although "interesting foliage" could win a place in my containers too!)
So, for a 6 gallon container, shared with other annuals, who's going to bloom happily all summer??
