Salvias by Origin

It's estimated that the genus Salvia contains about 900 species. Add to this hundreds of humanmade hybrids and you have the largest genus in the mint family (Lamiaceae). Species are found in Africa, the Americas, Australia, the Caribbean, Central Asia (many in Turkey), the Far East and the Mediterranean.

We have always found that one of the keys to success with any plant is to understand the growing conditions of its native habitat. To help you understand the needs of various Salvias, this list organizes the ones that we grow by areas of origin and provides notes about those environments.
