Salvia guaranitica 'Omaha Gold'  -   Anise Scented SageSalvia Hardiness

One of the tricks we've found with Salvias, particularly the ones with hollow stems, is that they survive winter better (when on the edge of their hardiness) if they aren't cut back until spring.  I suppose the hollow stems just funnel rainwater right down deep in the crown.   Possibly it's also that the stems will catch and hold blowing leaves and give them some extra cover.  (The first year I married my husband, I unknowingly cut back one of the hollow stem Salvias and had to put duct tape over each of about 75 stems to keep the water out!)  :-)  Also, laying wide flat rocks over the roots can give them extra warmth and prevent heaving if it's a new planting.  Please note:  Although were in Zone 7, we do list all of our Salvias here even some not hardy here in zone 7.  We have found many Salvias, originally listed as not hardy for us, turned out to be hardy especially the S. greggiis when planted early in the season.  So there are some Zone 8 Salvias listed below.    (Salvias above left are yellow S. glutinosa, blue S. guarinitica 'Black and Blue' and purple Salvia leucantha 'Santa Barbara' -- a few basic necessities!)

 
  Deer ResistantWe've listed all Salvias as Deer-Resistant even though many of our unusual ones don't show up on list but due to their pungent aroma or scratchy leaves or whatever that deer don't like, we've never found Salvias to be bothered by deer in our high deer population gardens.

Salvia greggii and Hummingbird MothAbout the hardiness of Salvia greggii.  HARDY TO ZONE 7!

We still see sources who list these plants as Zone 8 as the lower limit of hardiness.  It simply isn't true.  We've had many of them in our 7A closer to 6B) garden for years.  We do give them superb drainage but as of this writing we have had Raspberry Royal, Furman's Red, Yellow Cloud, Variegata, White and Watermelon for multiple years including 2007 which was bitter probably closer to a 6B winter and we have no consistent snow cover.  'Desert Blaze' did die back almost to the ground but then collected her beautiful self and just started over and is a lovely 24" by 24" now blooming furiously, like the rest, in late October after starting in July.

We are absolutely wild over these plants.  Stunning and easy with sun and good drainage.

And sure -- they'll attract Hummingbirds -- but they'll also attract the exquisite Hummingbird Moth shown at the left!

We picked up this unusual color form of Salvia greggii from plant guru, Chip Shoemaker, in Texas. The small mound of woody stems is clothed with narrow green foliage. In late spring and again in the fall, the 3-4' wide, deer-resistant, hummingbird-attracting clumps of Salvia 'Diane' are topped with small purple flowers. In some climates with less baking summers, you will also see some summer flowering. If you've been looking for a color break from typical Salvia greggii, this is your plant.

What you're saying about us...

"I wanted to let you know that the plants arrived yesterday and all found their new homes in the ground today. They arrived in beautiful shape--that was the best packing job I've ever seen on mail-order plants. Thanks for that and also for all the stakes, several of which also found homes in various places around the yard. This is the first time I've ordered from you but it's easy to see why you are so highly rated at Dave's Garden. You can bet that I'll be back again."

Denise, Bowling Green, KY. 09-06

Note:  The stakes Denise is referring to are two small bamboo stakes that are in each plant.  Many customers leave them with the plants to remind them of the newly planted plants for watering purposes, etc., and one clever customer uses them with the plants to keep his dog from laying on the new plants!  :-)

About Zones for Salvia nemorosa cultivars because nobody seems to agree.  Kemper Center at Missouri Botanical garden says Zone 4-8.  The USDA shows them naturalized all along the Canadian Border including North Dakota and Wisconsin, Walter's Gardens says 3-8,  Northcreek says 4-9,  Oregon State 5-9.  So with a fair amount of information we say (3)4-9.  Anytime we put a zone in parenthesis it means well worth a try in a protected spot.

Salvia nemorosa 'Caradonna'   Carrdonna Sage  Zone: (3)4-9    (6 hours direct sun)

Salvia nemorosa 'Caradonna'ISU 2000 Award Winner and they say "a foundling" from the Zillmer Nursery in Germany and probably a chance seedling of Salvia 'Wesuve'. The plant is outstanding because it bears a multitude of violet-colored flowers, has a long blooming period and strong stems that don't need any support. A distinguishing characteristic of 'Caradonna' are the purplish-black flower stems and burgundy new growth prior to the blooms opening violet purple.  Amazing, dramatic coloration totally in a class by itself!

Salvia x 'Royal Crimson Distinction' PPAF     Sage                 Zone: 4-8         

Salvia x 'Royal Crimson Distinction' PPAF     SageFirst, lets be clear.  This plant is NOT Crimson -- or what I think of as Crimson (close to red.)  It has however deep dark violet blooms above classic Salvia foliage.  The color -- a breakthrough for Salvias which usually come in pink, purple, blue -- has strong shadings here and there of crimson violet and is quite eye-catching in the garden and draws in butterflies and hummingbirds.  Drought tolerant.  *Will rebloom if deadheaded.  Flower spikes to 20" just loaded with blooms.  Often listed as a S. pratensis but it's almost surely a hybrid.

Soil: Well-drained     H: 18-24"  W: 12-18"        B/M:  Deep Violet6-8*
