Beautiful array of Salvia's, I was wondering if we could have more information on the zones that plants live in exhibited here. We live in 3b-4.

Great news letters thank you.

Well, if you click on the plant name or the featured photos it will take you to the database page for that plant where you can find the zone info...
and unfortunately, there are not very many Salvias that are reliably perennial in the colder zones Sighing! but they can be grown as annuals Smiling

Here's the Salvia database. The Salvias Database

Click where it states; Search by characteristics (height, bloom color, etc) and scroll down the list to where it states;

Minimum cold hardiness

and drop down the menu and you can then search by zones for Salvias. Make sure you click one of the green Search buttons after you check what you want searched and you'll see the Salvia results listed.

Hope that helps you.

Come on over to the Agastache and Salvias forum also.
