The U.S. Department of Agriculture separates America into 13 hardiness zones based on average annual minimum temperatures. Each zone covers a minimum low range of ten degrees. For example, winter temperatures in Zone 7 generally drop from 10 to 0 degrees F whereas Zone 8's lows are from 20 down to 10 degrees F. If you are looking for a perennial Salvia, choose your zone here.
The default selection is All Zones.
Somewhere all Salvias are repeat performers known as hardy perennials. Many aren't perennial in areas where winters are cold. Yet they grow so rapidly and provide such a long-lasting floral display that gardeners in those chilly areas grow them as annuals requiring planting each year. Annual Salvias are also called tender perennials due to succumbing to light frost.
Most hardy perennial Salvia species with soft, herbaceous growth die to ground during winter. Others known as subshrubs combine soft and woody growth. The roots of both kinds live on through winter to create growth the coming spring in their appropriate USDA Plant Hardiness Zones. Click on Hardy Perennials to find Salvias based on your hardiness zone. Choose Tender Perennials if you want annuals.
The default selection is Any.
