Select Rose Salvia

cyng(z4/5 CO)May 28, 2006

Hello everyone,

I wonder if anyone can tell me whether Salvia Nemerosa "Select Rose" is different than "Rose Queen" or just that by another name. I saw it in K-mart the other day and wondered if it was they're brand name for Rose Queen or if its actually a different variety. Looks very similar -- very pretty.

Thanks very much.

It is hard to tell without an image. Do the pots have proprietary labels with a suppliers name?

There is no good way to market the old S. guaranitica as anise-scented sage or without a varietal name, and a Latin name is a turn-off for most folks. I suspect some grower just gave it the name Sapphire Sage, but I have no way to prove that.
