The Q&A Archives: Do you think Red Salvia will recover?

Question: Bought 8 pots of red salvia at Home Depot last weekend and planted them (risked it). We had a couple nights of 30 degree weather since (covered them at night). Top half of each looks very bad now (drooping/dead), but bottom leaves look just fine. Should I replant or do think they'll bounce back for me? Was hoping to have them look good when hummers arrive in May (MD). Thanks! Alan

Answer: I think they will recover but be sure to cover them if more frost is predicted. Once the weather warms you can trim off the winter kill and the plants should make up for lost time. This winter weather should be over soon - at least I hope!
