Ok, I figured out how to post this now, have to share this garden with you. I just took these pictures this morning. If anyone knows what ANY of these salvias are, let me know because I must have all of them. Thanks and enjoy!! Dana

The pinky/purple one looked like it might be a Chiapensis. Where pray tell is this lovely garden Dana?

The pink Salvia is a microphylla, probably `Dieciocho de Marzo' or `San Carlos Festival', if it is tall. It is hard to tell exactly because there isn't anything to tell how tall the plant is, and because the red/blue balance is off.

The leucantha form is `Midnight', with purple flowers.

Nice garden. The photos are real fuzzy and the color appears really "bleached" out. I do not notice this with any other sites, do others see it this way?

Thanks.

Do not adjust your sets---it is just a crappy picture. My digital camera is via my camera phone without a steady hand.
