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.
(Elk Blue Moon III Jame Sage) Dark calyxes cup dusky blue flowers that age to lavender and rise up from the veined, mid-green foliage of Salvia x ‘Elk Blue Moon III’.
(Beacon Fuchsia) Upright with bushy, dark green foliage, Fuchsia ‘Beacon’ has deep pink sepals that flare or drape demurely over mauve-pink corollas. It’s a short, compact shrub that is ideal for perennial borders, containers, and for growing as a summer-blooming annual.
(Elk Grape Ape Jame Sage) Bountiful flowers that are larger than normal for Jame Sage cover Salvia x ‘Elk Grape Ape’ in a cloud of purple that is sort of amethyst to pinot gris in color.
(Elk Smokey Grape Jame Sage) We think the dusky lavender flowers of Salvia x ‘Elk Smokey Grape’ look like the dusty, pale reddish-blue of Malbec grapes. This is a floriferous beauty.
(Red Birds in a Tree) Flocks of cardinal red blossoms shaped like tiny birds inhabit the tall flower spikes of Scrophularia macrantha, which is best known as Red Birds in a Tree and is well loved for its ability to attract hummingbirds.
(Elk Pink Cloud Jame Sage II) Abounding with clusters of large, soft pink flowers on spreading branches, Salvia x ‘Elk Pink Cloud II’ looks like a fluffy, cumulonimbus cloud.
(Italian Clary Sage) Clary Sages are well known for their use in folk remedies, aromatherapy and cosmetics. Glowing purple bracts frame the spectacular white blooms of this cultivar on 5-foot-tall spikes. It is a delight for honeybees, hummingbirds and butterflies.
(Cardinal Fuchsia) Introduced in 1938 by the historic Evans & Reeves Nurseries in Southern California, Fuchsia ‘Cardinal’ is a tall shrub with flowers composed of lovely red sepals and magenta corollas.
(Christmas Elf Fuchsia) Looking like cute, white pantaloons, the fluffy petals of Fuchsia ‘Christmas Elf’ are exposed under bright red sepals that flex upward like a skirt twirling. Hummingbirds love it.
(Rosie Posie Anise Hyssop) Agastache aren’t known for tidy appearance. But the long blooming, hot pink flowers and dense, fragrant foliage of Agastache x ‘Rosie Posie’ form short, dense mounds ideal for well-behaved borders.
(Wild Meadow Sage) Meadow sages are native to Europe and include many hybrids. This lush, purple-flowered plant is a wild species that most likely is a hybrid of two ancient sages -- Salvia nemorosa and Salvia pratensis.
(Mount Olympus Sage) The deep violet and white flowers of Salvia ringens are eyecatching. Their wiry, branched spikes rise up to 5 feet tall from a dark green basal rosette.
(Turkish Mountain Sage) Part of the Salvia canescens group of Mediterranean sages, this dwarf species features lavender parrot-type flowers with whitish lower lips (or should we say beaks!).
(Paula Flynn Sage) Floral spikes with whorls of bluish-purple flowers rise up amid the slightly relaxed, upright foliage of the mystery plant Salvia ‘Paula Flynn’. It features pebbly, deep green leaves with white, fuzzy undersides.
(Light Pink Joy Sage) Salvia x 'Alegra Light Pink' is one of the most vigorous new plants at Flowers by the Sea. It is a South American introduction from Roland Uria, an agronomy professor and plant researcher from Buenos Aires, Argentina. This select clone is a soft light pink shade.
(Hardy Pink & Yellow Gloxinia) This color form is rarely seen in Sinningia sellovii, which is a Brazilian species that tolerates heat and lures hummingbirds.
(Willie Tamerus Fuchsia) Pale salmon sepals flare out like elegant tutus over the rosy red-orange corollas of long-tubed Fuchsia ‘Willie Tamerus’. The blossoms drip so gracefully from the lax foliage that this petite hybrid is an ideal hanging basket plant.
(Remembrance Fuchsia) Flowers comprised of red sepals turned upward above pale rose pink corollas with red veins in Fuchsia 'Remembrance' giving it the look of a delicious confection.
(Margaret Fuchsia) Violet corollas with red stripes hang from the upwardly curled, carmine red sepals of Fuchsia ‘Margaret’. The flowers are surrounded by small, light green leaves with a subtle red tint.
(Pixie Fuchsia) The red sepals and rosy lavender corollas of Fuchsia ‘Pixie’ flowers stand out amid its yellowish green foliage. The impressed veins of its lance-shaped leaves make this upright, deciduous shrub even more attractive.
