Change is constant in horticulture. Selecting the best new plants is daunting even in one genus, especially Salvia, which contains about 900 species of true sages worldwide. Our New Arrivals section showcases the latest sages and companions in our online catalog whether new to commercial horticulture or only to our gardens. Please contact us if you have questions or gardening experiences to share about these plants.
(Big Blue Sage) This new seed-grown strain can best be described as a much improved Indigo Spires Sage. It has deep blue-green, corrugated leaves and lots of deep blue flower spikes that bloom from summer till the end of the growing season.
(Nanjinga Chinese Sage) Profuse blue-violet blossoms supported by wine-colored bracts whorl around the long floral stems of perennial Salvia chinensis ‘Nanjinga’. These verticillasters reach upward from glossy, dark green basal leaves with a purple sheen and hairy undersides.
(Roseleaf Sage) A glorious bloomer, Roseleaf Sage starts producing hot pink blossoms in late summer and continues into spring -- growing more spectacular every day -- unless cut down to the ground by hard frost.
(Lush Lavender Spur Flower) Plumes of lavender blue flowers rise from the lush, richly colored foliage of Plectranthus ciliatus ‘Zulu Wonder’ on velvety, reddish-purple spikes. The coarsely toothed, mid-green leaves are reddish-purple on their undersides.
(Queen Elizabeth Fuchsia) Long and slender, the upward curling red sepals of Fuchsia ‘Queen Elizabeth’ rise above a corolla of cerise petals. This bountiful bloomer is a trailing Fuchsia with mid-green foliage. It’s ideal for hanging baskets.
(Golden Leaf Sage) A tinge of gold in its fuzzy, pebbled foliage gives Salvia chrysophylla its common name. Abundant lavender flowers with pale cream lower lips make it stand out in the landscape.
