Salvia Greggi 'Blue' Problems
I live in San Antonio, Texas and grow a variety of Salvia Greggi. So far, they have done great down here.
The other day, I saw a new variety at my local nursery. It is from a wholesaler, who has named it Salvia Greggi Blue. It is a new hybrid. As a matter of fact, it is so new that it was the first shipment that the nursery got. The staff didn't know anything about it.
It isn't actually blue, it is a dark indigo purple.
Anyway, it appeared that this salvia almost had a "trailing habit". The leaves are the same as the other Greggis.
Well, it turned out when I went to plant it, the stems started falling off. The trailing habit turned out to be a sort of "lanky growth".
We've check for bugs, fungus etc. We can't find out what is the matter with it.
I bought 4 of them, and it seems to be happening to all of them.
I can't figure out what is going on.
We've had a lot of rain down here. Is it possible that the rain caused this wierd growth at the growers?
