Does the foliage on this salvia look familiar?

ellieandethansmom(7)June 5, 2005

This is a double post (name that plant forum) about identifying a salvia without flowers, foliage only. It was overwintered from a fall cutting and is suffering from some sort of blight (brown yellowing leaves on the lower portion). I'd like to identify the type of salvia it is to help it. Thanks for any help.

Here is a link that might be useful:

I'd guess a guaranitica is most likely, though there are other species that have a similar leaf shape. My cuttings often look a little anemic after spending the winter under a grow light. They perk right up after I harden them off outside and they get some sunlight. Be sure the potting medium is well drained. Most salvia don't like to stay wet.
