Salvia Plumosa

casi(5)August 19, 2009

One of my favorite salvias is the Plumosa. My daughter ordered some from Michigan Bulb and the first year they were beautiful. They filled her beds; mine are leggy. I know I can't do anything with them now, but is there a way next year to control them. Do you pinch them back to make them more contained?

Assume you have Salvia nemorosa 'Plumosa', a lovely Salvia, BUT it is always untidy here. Pinching it back should help. This is a Salvia which thrives in full sun.

I tried it here in Texas and it never did well. Neremosas never do for me. I read somewhere they do not like "hot Dirt". Well, that about says it. All I have is hot dirt. REAL HOT dirt.
