(Querataro Mexican Sage) Pump it up! Salvia mexicana 'Querataro' is a Limelight Mexican Sage on steroids -- much larger all over and more vigorous. Honeybees and hummingbirds love its deep violet-blue flowers.
(Russell's Mexican Sage) Expect rapid, tall growth from this Salvia Mexicana . In the ground, Russell’s Mexican Sage can reach up to 10 feet tall and 5 feet wide, providing an effective screen of dark green, heart-shaped foliage. By late autumn it’s bursting with flowers.
(Ocampo Mexican Sage) Growing from 7 to 10 feet tall each year, this is the largest of our Mexican Sages. Yet due to its erect form, this sage only spreads 36 inches. It has large, deep violet flowers with almost black calyxes that rise up on tall spikes and dark green, heavily veined foliage.
(Limelight Mexican Sage) The chartreuse green calyxes and deep violet flowers of this sage form an electric combination that lights up the partial shade garden from late summer through fall. The light gray-green leaves are a handsome finishing touch.

The plants that Vicki and Kermit sent are amazing in their size and health! The shipping costs are high, and there must be a way to change the packaging. Still, if you want plants that are not available elsewhere, then you get the best from the Carters. Dave Sherron in Houston
My plants arrived quickly and they were in excellent health. So far, they are doing well in my yard despite the unusually dry weather we've had on the Monterey Peninsula this winter. I will definitely order from fbts again!
The 3 Salvia sagittata arrived healthy and have taken off. The 1 Salvia patens Guanajuato had very few roots. It was loose in the pot and perhaps suffered root damage in the long transit. It's not dead, but is the plant TLC and has lost one stem. The packing was good. I think occasional losses...
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.

My plants arrived in great shape! Thanks.
The plants came promptly and were in beautiful shape, nice and strong for planting. They look great.
I’m so pleased to have found you! I never realized how lovely salvia could be. I tried just two this year, three plants of each. I’m in zone 6 and felt challenged to find a beautiful plant hardy in my zone. The two I tried were exceptional. Salvia greggii 'Burgundy...
