Salvia in Central Florida
Are there any Salvia lovers from Central Florida here? I fell in love with Salvia this past spring and bought several packets of seed of various species off Ebay. But my love was unrequited. Almost every thing died. Maybe I did something wrong. From what I read about Salvia, I thought Florida would be a great place -- poor sandy soil, dry springs - wet summers - dry falls, and hot blazing sunshine most of the year. But the only species that seem to grow well for me is S.coccinea and S. farinacea.
Does anyone know of other species that might do well here? Or even some advice from some one who grows a variety of Salvia species in Central Florida.
Just wondering if any body here has experience with Salvia in Florida.
