Greetings All salvia lovers,
Here is a pic of my Salvia Purpurea.
Here is a link that might be useful:
Pretty! I like that color!
Your salvia Purpurea looks very nice. I've growing s. purpureas before but mine have always had tiny little flowers? Your flowers look a lot bigger than mine were, I'm wondering why?
Thanks Heathen1 & Helena,
The first flowers that opened on the purpurea were small & as more and more opened they got bigger & bigger.
Maybe it has got something to do with climates?
It sure does. Mine are always late. A slow long slide with cooling temperatures without frost is best for fall blooming sages. I hope to get good images of Salvia purpurea Lavender Lace and the Salvia iodantha from Baton Rouge soon.
