This list contains Salvias that have proven themselves to be durable and grow well in full sun in most of the nation. However, please keep in mind that full sun in intense heat -- such as in Texas and the Southwest -- is different than full sun in cooler climates, including the coastal Pacific Northwest.
This is our product-filtering list to use when searching for plants. It doesn't take long to get the hang of it. Once you do, it makes the process of finding plants for your garden conditions easier and faster. The product filters allow plant identification by the following traits:
Each trait filter offers a variety of selections, such as multiple kinds of soil from which to choose in the soil-type filter.
Here are the steps for using our product filters:
One final note: You can clear the filters at any time by clicking on the Remove Filters button at the top of your plant queue. The list of filters and the queue of plants will reset so you can search again from a different perspective.
I was feeling glum today, and then UPS delivered my new plants from FBTS (doing a nice job of placing the box right side up). I opened it immediately to discover that all the plants were moist, green and healthy. I fell in love with the sweet fragrances of Salvia lyciodes x greggii 'Ultra Violet' and Salvia lyciodes x greggii 'Ultra Violet' as well as the fascinating variety...— Marlene
Beautiful plants well packed for winter delivery arrived in great shape, thank you!— Chris Malik
I received my plants from FBTS Yesterday. I immediately opened the box and was in awe at the size and healthy condition of the plants even traveling from California to NY. The plants were perfect and even had blooms and buds ready to open when they arrived. I carefully unpacked them and placed them in a window with filtered sunlight for a couple of days prior to moving them onto my porch fo...— Penny
I received my second order of great looking plants - they were sent on Monday and didn't arrive until Friday - only slightly limp; I said "great looking" because they were thick, bushy and very healthy looking.— Doris Wilkinson
I was ecstatic last month when I found this nursery while searching for information on Canary Island Sage.Then, when I discovered that they had Salvia azurea, I just knew that I had to order some things.All told, I ended up ordering 7 plants the week before a big Salvia conference. When they got back, we sorted out shipping everything in one box.It arrived two days later, which happened to be ...— Brandon
I recently decided to overhaul a large sun garden in the front of my new home. After removing all of the existing plants and weeds, I realized that I had quite a bit more space to fill than I originally anticipated. Every gardeners dream! More space! So I began looking for perennials I have wanted for a long time and found FBTS had two kniphofia that were unavailable locally. I had my reservati...— Matt
Clearly I am addicted to Flowers by the Sea! I think I've just about ordered at least one of everything! The plants are all super healthy, and arrive in great shape owing to the (patented?) packing method. The hummingbirds, bees and butterflies are in 7th heaven. I HIGHLY recommend FBTS for all the plants they offer, not just the salvias. I got some terrestrial orchids that are doing...— Laurel Burik
I recently received my very first order from Flowers by the Sea Nursery in Northern California. It won't be my last. I had researched a lot online about Salivas and although many of the more exciting varieties seemed suitable for my climate -- I knew no nursery that grew them -- meaning I would have to try growing them from seed (not exactly my first choice). Then I found Flowers by the ...— Dan Tyson
- Woohooo! Happy 1st day of snrpig! I love the variety of your work! Your portraits are captivating and your floral/natural pictures are so beautifully composed. I will check you out often and I wish you a lovely snrpig.— Carol
Thank you so much for the shipment of beautiful plants! Every plant in my large order made it to Florida in good shape, and after the recommended period of recovery, they are now flourishing! I am delighted to have these great new additions to my salvia collection, almost all of which are never available in local nurseries and garden centers. I also really appreciated the personal communica...— Jill Reed
