Zone 9 and Above Hardy

Tender Salvias are those species, varieties and hybrids that cannot tolerate temperatures below the mid 20's (F). In our opinion, even though these may represent more work for many gardeners, they are worth the effort!  Many of these plants can be grown as rewarding annuals, or in large pots.
