You might try contacting this fellow: http://www.robinssalvias.com/about.htm

He is not a seller, but I ran across comments from people growing this Salvia from seeds they had obtained from him. He might be able to at least offer some suggestions for sources.

Edited to correct gender of contact (Thanks Sue!) lol!

Oops. *Blush* I tend to read text, not look at pictures. I just saw the email link at the bottom of the page and grabbed the page address. From some of the conversations that led me to his page, sounds like others have made the same wrong assumption. Smiling Thanks for the correction. But, hey, I get mail addressed to Mr. Ross and I just smile. That's what I get for ordering tools, I guess. Hilarious!
