'New Salvias from Argentina'

roland_gardenerDecember 4, 2007

A "new" Salvia species has been collected from the wild in Northeastern Argentina by Prof. German Roitman (School of Agronomy, Univ. of Buenos Aires). Although it was cited for Argentinean flora, it has never been in cultivation before. Its name is yet to be confirmed but it might be Salvia nervosa. Pictures will be uploaded by Robin Middleton soon.

I hope you enjoy it.

Best Wishes to all the Salvia community!

Merry Christmas to all! I wonder what it looks like and if the hummingbirds use it?
