A favorite of mine and is a "must have" every Spring though Fall. The bright blue flowers with the black calyxes is a standout. Hummers love these flowers and it should be in every Hummingbird flower garden.

Flowers by the Sea is one of my favorite nurseries; buying plants from them reminds me of kennels that raise puppies in the house as family dogs until they are old enough to sell: these are well loved plants: well grown, well documented, well shipped. Pop them in the ground and stand back. I don't think I've ever had a problem with a plant I've gotten here, even after they've been in my clumsy...

Just received my 3 Plectranthus Mona Lavender and I was amazed at the more than excellent packing. What surprised me the most was that it was in transit for 7 days from California to Florida. I expected them to be somewhat droopy, but immediately out of the box they are healthy, beautiful, not dried out at all and have great color. This is the best care I have seen from a plant mail order co...

As usual I am very pleased with the recent purchase of Salvia from you. Also, thank you for gifting me the plants that were shipped in error. You folks are extremely fair and this is greatly appreciated. My only issue is the distance and freight costs involved in purchasing from you. However, the variety and scope of your Salvia offerings is not matched by any other vendor that I am aware of...

I have ordered plants from FBTS for the last 4 years, 17 plants in spring 2014. They are the most impressive plants in health and size that I have received from any mail order company. These are not little cuttings, but rather large bushy plants, typically 8-10 or more inches tall, full of buds and sometimes already blooming. They take off when planted. The varieties are as described on the we...

I ordered Wendy's Wish salvia and Elk white ice salvia. I was thrilled to find the Wendy's Wish. It is one of my favorite salvias. I had never had a truly white salvia and it is stunning. The plants were in great shape after traveling from California all the way to Georgia. They are thriving in my garden. The hummingbirds cover these plants all day. I am so excited to have a source for salvi...

I was very happy when my plants arrived to see that they were large and very well packed. I live in MIchigan so they had to come quite a distance. They arrived in perfect shape. They are doing well now that they are planted. I know that Michigan is fairly far north for these salvias but I hope they will make it.
I ordered an assortment of Mexican Native Salivias. I can report this: I received top quality, large plants that were very well rooted, & pinched back. The plants were well well packaged & delivered exactly as scheduled. No soil jostled, no damaged leaves/stems. I'm impressed.Worth comment, too, is the impressive breadth of Salvia species, availability of plants offered, and site ...
I have always been a salvia fan and when I lived in CA I had hundreds of plants. When I moved to NJ I was in a cold climate and nurseries in the area did not compare with the SF Bay Area. I actually stumbled upon your website one late summer and ordered Zone 6 hardy plants. When they arrived I was pleased to find very large and healthy plants. And we order online from several large nurseries. I...

My order came a couple of days ago and I had to write and thank you. The packing was some of the best I've seen and all the plants were large beautiful specimens, every single one arriving in excellent shape. I buy a lot of plants mail order and your nursery is at the top of my list! Thank you for the excellent job you do and your customer service is the best!
