Hi Folks,

I live over at the Florida Forum, recently started converting my yard for hummingbirds and now I'm hooked on salvias :-) Anybody have this one or know where I could get it?

Tom,

You could try Flowers by the Sea, in CA. They stock this wonderful Salvia, but may be currently out of stock. This is a highly reputable place, with many excellent reviews of their mail order.

If no luck, email me as I have a few seeds...they germinate quickly and will flower within months.

Robin.

Hi Robin,

You could try Flowers by the Sea....

I tried them first, it is out of stock :-( I'd sure hate for you to have to send seeds across the pond....

Back in stock at Flowers by the Sea, as of this moment.

Robin is spot on - they grow very quickly from seed.

Should we start calling this one S. vasquezii?

RE: Salvia Gravida

I think it should be S. vasquezii. I finally got a taxonomic citation on the subject:

A new species and a new subspecies of Salvia (Lamiaceae) from Jalisco and Michoacán, Mexico

Hugh H. Iltis, Jesús Guadalupe González-Gallegos, Theodore S. Cochrane, and José Antonio Vázquez-García

Abstract. A new species and a new subspecies of Salvia, Salvia vazquezii and Salvia vazquezii subsp. tancitaroensis, from the Jalisco-Colima border and Michoacán, Mexico, respectively, are segregated from the S. gravida complex. They are described, illustrated and compared. A key to the three taxa and a translated and expanded circumscription of S. gravida are provided.

Taxonomic publications are the gold standard for settling any questions on these subjects, within the areas covered in the article.
