Salvia

Bright and Bold Beauties

Salvia is a diverse genus of plants bringing a variety of flower colors, habits and hardiness to any perennial assortment. With so many varieties available on the market, we have focused on varieties best for perennial programs: tender perennial types, woody stem types and hardy perennial types.

Tender perennial types of Salvia can be hardy in southern areas of the country but in most areas they are not hardy. These Salvias have tropical bloodlines, boast big, bold, beautiful flowers and because of their fast growth, they still work great as summer annuals in areas where not hardy.

Woody stem types of Salvia are classified as shrubs and subshrubs in warmer climates as they never die back and form a woody base. These are generally hardier than the tender perennial types but still not hardy in all areas of the country.

Hardy perennial types of Salvia are generally hardy throughout most of the US. They have a rosette, clumping growth habit and die back in the winter in most places or can be cut back.
