The Q&A Archives: Salvia Search

Question: I am searching for two varieties of salvia, salvia discolor, which is a native to Peru, and one that I don't know the botanical name of. It has leaves similar to Pineapple Sage, but the flowers are MUCH larger and more orange than red. Please help!

Answer: Salvia discolor (Peruvian Sage) is available from Richter's Herbs at ph. # 905-640-6677 or, visit the website at Unfortunately, I can't figure out what the other one you are looking for is based on that description, there are ALOT of salvias out there.
