I want Salvia guaranitica
Good morning folks,
I posted a picture of the salvia guaranitica at the hotel I stayed at our peren and ws forum. However, I have exceeded my bandwidth limit in photobucket. LOL. I am so in love with this plant. The black blue flowers contrast the light green leaves very well.
I'm in zone 5 but I really would like to have this plant. I did some research and found out that they are only hardy to zone 7 and up. I haven't bought one since I only knew about them few days ago. It's a bit late. I can try it next year.
So, how do I overwinter them in the basement? I think my unfinished basement's temp in winter is somewhere 50F-60F. And do they overwinter well? I don't like to try leaving them in ground because I tried Pampas Grass with very thick mulch in south side but they never made it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
