Salvias in garden design?
I realize that most folks here are collectors, and I often wonder how you use your salivas in your gardens. Do you have photos of the combinations that you use? Would you share?
Since salvias are deer-resistant and I have a full sun garden, they are the perfect plant for me to use. I'm just getting started!
Here is my favorite combo using salvia greggii 'Dark Dancer'. This section of my garden is only 1 year old, but I transplanted the salvias from 2 years ago to this location. I added another one this summer.
pink muhly for fall color
echinacea 'Ruby Star' for summer color
spirea 'Neon Flash' for spring color
buddleia 'Adonis Blue' for blooms off/on
crape myrtle 'White Chocolate' for burgundy foliage
Photos taken last week:
Please share your favorite combinations.
