Best Salvias to grow?

That's another plus deadheading on Embers and the like. Don't "impoverish" them......good soil produces better plants.

Coronilla Citrina Newb??   Flowers in winter.  If you can give it a warm spot and good drainage it will light up your winter garden

Dogwoods should really bein the ground chinquest.  They enjoy some moisture and pots are likely to be too dry

so that fence area?  Is that where the concrete is and the bricks?  Can you get someone in to clear that area, dig out the concrete because you have a splendid planting area there for climbers, shrubs and perennials? 

What is your weather like? (2)

Yes I think that's true Bright Star.

salvias have smells, toxins that I think deter pests and diseases. 

I have many salvias here and never known any pest on them.  I have white, yellow, pink, red, blue, purple and more colours on low perennials to 10' statuesque Uliginosas.  Huge variety of salvias

You will get very different views on this jennifer 

down here, yes I would prune them.

however, it is late in the year so I suggest you remove the top most flowers to tidy the shrubs a little but leave any pruning umtil spring.  Then you can prune as hard as you like.
