Salvia ID's 'Phyllis' and 'Mystic Spires'

Posted by ralphw z7b-8 NC (My Page) on

At the fall Raleigh swap I received an unrooted cutting of a Salvia labeled 'Phyllis' - the label was written with a metallic silver pen. It successfully rooted and over-wintered. I am curious to know if this is S. 'Phyllis Fancy' hybrid. I also have a plant that I got last spring that looks like a shorter version of S. 'Indigo Spires' that I think could be S. 'Mystic Spires'. Can anyone verify that they brought this plant to last spring's swap? I want to share it this spring and would like to verify its name before giving it to others.

Ralph, I did bring you the 'Phyllis Fancy'. It was a strong grower for me last year from a tiny little pot. I'm glad to hear it rooted for you even though I felt certain it would.
