Fall Planting Sale
Soil is warmer in autumn than in spring.  In the fall temperatures begin cooling, which makes garden work easier. Put these traits together and you have a season that is ideal for planting many Salvias and companion plants.

For gardens in areas with warm winters, planting certain sages in autumn results in vibrant color at a time of year when you might not expect it. In regions with cold winters, early autumn planting allows roots to become well-established before frosts arrive. Then, mulching new plantings with a thick layer of autumn leaves protects the roots until the spring growing season arrives. 

From Tuesday August 12th through Tuesday August 26th, our FALL PLANTING SALE gives you 25% off on all of these plants.  Limited to stock on hand.

(Himalayan Sage or Kashmir Sage) The word "hians" in Salvia hians means "gaping" and refers to the hanging lip of this sage's flowers, which bloom from late spring through early fall.  This may or may not the "true" species as it is described, hence the term aff or affnis in the name, which indicates that this plant is related to, has an affinity to, but is not identical to Salvia hians.
