Yesterday I received some salvia coccinea seeds. I was wondering if I should plant them now or wait until Fall? Thanks Thumbs up

Mine reseed themselves all the time and I find new sprouts throughout the season. I would think you should be able to plant them and see blooms.
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

If you're in zone 8a, you could get two generations of plants in one season--I do. I don't even plant them anymore, just let them come up and pull the ones I don't want.

I've done both. Very tiny seeds usually don't need be buried, so I either tamp them down gently or cover them just a bit and tamp them down firmly.

Thanks Taqiyyah. I'll do that. The seeds are surprisingly bigger than I expected. I got some seed starting mix so once it stops raining I'll sow some seeds. Thumbs up

I agree Hurray! Hurray!
Wonderful!! Of the seeds I sowed this spring the S Coccinea (mine is Summer Jewel Lacender) was the first to germinate! Good for you! The other nice thing about S Coccinea (at least the ones I have had) is that they bloom when still fairly small. You are going to enjoy them!

That's good to know Judy. I can't wait to see the first bloom on these. I may plant some in full sun and some in dappled shade. Thumbs up
