Re: Tender Salvias

Gerry, thanks I didn't know that there was that much to salvias.  I never 
really looked into them because I always think of them as red.  We don't 
plant red, orange and not much yellow in our yard.  The blue Victoria salvia 
is a big winner in my garden, and I usually just break it off because it will 
survive the winter and come back real bushy.  Pretty remarkable for zone 5.  
I notice some little birds trying to get seeds from some salvia that is left 
in a big whiskey barrel planter on the patio the other day.  I would have 
left all the salvia plants in the beds if I had known that they provide seed 
for the birds.  I think that I planted six flats of blue Victoria last spring.

I am eyeballing a book on woody plants by Michael Dirr, and it is expensive 
so I will have to put the salvia books on my list for the spring.  Keith my 
husband says when the mailman rings the doorbell with another book from 
Amazon, "your daily delivery is here, dear."  He tries hard to be funny, the 
humor misses me.

Merry, merry,
