Not sure about a salvia

basket76(Z7 France)September 15, 2010

I have seen a salvia in a garden and the owner is doubting about the name. Could be clevelandii? How can I do the difference between munzii and clevelandii ?

Thanks for your help.

To me S.clevelandii the whorls of flowers are spaced
farther apart. S.munzii looks to be closer together at the
terminal growth. Not spaced evenly like they are on clevelandii. Can you post a picture?That would help a lot.

Post photos. Leaves should be sufficient. S. munzii is much closer to S. mellifera in general appearance than it is to S. clevelandii.
