Lovely blue Verdun. I have had them overwinter but the seed raised ones get to flower first
hello these sound lovely, would they suit a shady patch or can i grow them in pots? do i buy them as seeds or as tubers, what are tubers???
I grew them last year and you are right...startlingly blue flowers
I saw lots of Salvia Patens in Hidcote Garden some years ago and wanted them, but I couldn't find them here in France until fairly recently. I tried a few from the GC which were rather spindly and quite expensive. They didn't do very well, nothing like the Hidcote ones and they had much paler flowers.
I have only grown this one...(from seed)
verdun thanks for the suggestion
cheerypeabrain that looks lovely.
verdun thanks that looks a great place to buy salvias, happy shopping.
Yep, have grown both the deep blue and lighter blue cambridge from seed. Some of them came back for several years, but the recent cold winters seem to have done them in. Must get some seed and grow some more - both shades of blue are wonderful!
ive sown these last week now waiting for them to germinate.
Ive grown blue bedder this year and I am trying white porcelain they have germinated and outside under cover. They are lovely in the garden.
