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:
Winter coldness of your zone
Sun exposure of the site where you want to plant
Mature plant height and width desired,
Type of soil in your growing area and
Water requirements, such as whether you need drought tolerant plants.
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:
Select a category from the Plant Category Menu, which is at the top of each FBTS website page.
When the new page opens, notice whether a further breakdown of the category appears, as in the Salvias by Color category. If there is a further breakdown, select one of the choices. The results will appear on the new page that opens, and the product filter list will appear beneath the Plant Category Index.
Also note that for some plant categories, such as Hummingbird Plants and Plectranthus, the product filter list appears as soon as you open the category page due to there being no further breakdown of the category.
Be aware that the product filters will also appear if you enter a species name or other search term in the website search window.
Look at the number in parentheses that follows each selection in a trait filter. These numbers represent quantities. For example, if you are searching in the Salvias by Use index category for the option of Great Foliage, you'll see that the majority of our plants with handsome foliage need average watering.
Narrow your search by selecting perhaps two filters and clicking on one choice in each that matches your growing conditions.
Review the plants remaining in the description queue to the right of the filter list. Then carefully read the descriptions before selecting plants to add to your shopping cart.
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.
Salvias come in many colors: blue, red, purple, orange, pink, yellow, white, green and brown. And a few with multicolored flowers. For your convenience in designing your garden, we offer our plants here grouped by flower color.
The plants arrive in great condition and have started growing without any problems. The whole experience was very favorable. I highly recommend them.

I love Flowers by the Sea ! I always get quality products and service from you . The Salvias I’ve purchased are thriving and the milkweed is already starting to spread. I hope to have a full milkweed forest next summer to aid the Monarchs on their journey . I am glad I happened upon you .

The plants came promptly and were in beautiful shape, nice and strong for planting. They look great.
FBTS was great. They let me know when my item was available. Their packaging was very plant sensitive, and the plant was healthy. I am looking forwards to spring to see it bloom

Ordered 7 plants, 4 different varieties of Salvia. From California to Wisconsin 5 days in a box and these plants looked better than what I can buy locally from a greenhouse. Absolutely gorgeous!!!Thank you Kermit and your team for great service and plants.
