Special Salvia Groups

Divide and conquer! Another way that we categorize the hundreds of Salvias that we grow is to divide many of them into helpful "special groups." For example, if you want long-blooming color but live in an area where low-water gardens are necessary, try our large Autumn Sage (Salvia greggii) - Mountain Sage (S. microphylla) group.

Drought-tolerant plants are a major focus at Flowers by the Sea, but we recognize that some Salvias require ample moisture and that certain parts of the nation need water-loving plants. If you live in a warm-winter region that is humid, our grouping of "Salvias for Florida" offers a wealth of choices.

Chilly winters? Try our Meadow Sage group.

Want to see some of the most dramatic, true blue flowers on Earth? Visit our Gentian Sage group.

If you are planning a therapy garden or want entryway plants that will perfume your front walk, we've gathered a number of favorites in our Fragrant Salvias group.

Cooks intent on planting a kitchen garden should consider our Culinary Sage group. Gardeners who love bicolor foliage need to leaf peep in our Variegated Salvias group.

Finally, the Limited Seasonal Availability group is especially helpful for anyone searching for rare or hard-to-find species. As you tour our online catalog, you'll notice that some plants are sold only at particular times of year. This list helps you know which plants are limited and when they are available.

Please let us know if there are additional groupings that you would find useful.
