Salvia engelmannii has been available from:

Native American Seed

They may be temporarily out.

Later this spring I can collect some if I see any. They are disappearing under the bulldozers of a new development. I have some in my place but I find them peculiarly hard to start. They do just appear right where I don't want them , like in the dirt road to my house.

RE: Wanted:salvia engelmannii seed

I would really appreciate it if you would collect, I have salvia texana and penstemonoides which grow fine and would love some more of the Texan sages, if you ever
see seeds of salvia ballotiflora, urtifolia of the wild farinaceas I would love to try, I have salvia farinacea
Henry Duelberg and just adore it, thanks in advance...

Cheers Annette

I will email you. I grow Salvia ballotiflora but I have not seen it produce seeds. Maybe it is not self fertile and needs another plant to fertilize it. Urtifolia is not local to here. More in the south east of the US.. I do have other salvias and I will email you. I am warning you. I am a slow trader. My life is very disorganized right now.
