Which variety of salvia did I plant?
I took advantage of Home Depot's sale on annuals yesterday and brought home 4 packs of mixed Salvia splendens. The colors are purplish, salmon, pinkish and red. Which variety of salvia do you think I purchased? It did not state that on the packs.
I researched this plant before buying it. Since impatiens are affected nationwide by the mildew problem and no reputable nursery is carrying them this year (even so, the dumb Home Depot was still selling them!), and I wanted a border plant for my hosta garden under a small purple plum tree, I planted the salvia. They are said to do OK in partial shade. The garden gets some morning sun, then filtered sun. Petunias planted as a border plant there last year did fine and flowered well.
How long should it take until the plants "take" and start flowering profusely?
