Salvia: Blooms Big All Season!
from Bishop, CA
Salvia was a staple in our first attmept at a xeric garden. It grows fast, and blooms all season if dead blooms are cut. It is lovely and easy to care for.
My go-to plant

About Me Avid Gardener
Salvia greggii is my go-to plant. It is healthy, hardy, and takes very little care or water. I let a couple of them get way too leggy before pruning and when I finally took care of that they have come back fuller and more beautiful than ever.
these were beautiful and filled the area

I've used this in every flower bed we've added since moving to this home permanently in 1998. I love the color and the fragrance, plus it is deer resistant and drought tolerant!
Tips For Growing Salvia
Salvia (commonly referred to as ‘Sage’) represent a huge family of ornamental plants that attract a variety of pollinators to their nectar rich flowers. They are resistant to deer and rabbits.
Western Native Salvia: : It is from the Western US that we find our most beautiful native salvia species. For attracting hummingbirds, there are no finer flowers than the Western native sages. Typically, this group of Salvia prefer ‘lean’ (not very fertile), well drained soils. They will grow in dry clay conditions in arid climates but will rot out in clay soils where there is more than about 15 to 18” of precipitation annually.
Western sages include:
Old Wolrd Salvia: The Old World Salvia include some of the very best, most durable, longest-lived perennials. These salvia are an excellent choice for gardeners across most of the United States. ‘Old World’ Sages bloom primarily in shades of blue, pink and white. They are well adapted to cold climates and a wide range of soils including clay. The European Salvia are incredibly attractive to honey bees, many of our native bees and bumble bees as well as butterflies.
Old World varieties include:
