Ms. Ignorant here would like to know if there are a lot of different salvia greggi that are white?
Also would like to know if, in general, they can be grown from stem cuttings or only seeds. (Eyeing a neighbor's huge bed.)

Autumn Sage (Salvia greggii Stampede™ Citron) has a pale yellow color.

I, myself, consider these to be like Autumn Sages (Salvia greggii). Mountain Sage (Salvia microphylla), I consider them to be like an Autumn Sage (greggii) and their hybrids and (Salvia jamensis). They're all good salvias.

Salvia 'Elk White Ice' is a FBTS intro that is a cross of Salvia greggii and Salvia microphylla. http://www.fbts.com/salvia-x-elk-white-ice.html

Salvia microphylla Heatwave™ Glare, similar to a greggii. Not a FBTS intro, but they carry it. http://www.fbts.com/salvia-microphylla-heatwave-glare.html

Salvia x jamensis Heatwave™ Glimmer (or a microphylla) similar to a greggii. Not a FBTS intro, but they carry it. http://www.fbts.com/salvia-microphylla-heatwave-glimmer.html

Salvia 'Texas Wedding'. Not a FBTS intro, but they carry it. http://www.fbts.com/salvia-greggii-texas-wedding.html

FBTS has another intro that is very light in color (not white) if you're interested. Salvia x 'Elk Butter Light' (creamy yellow). http://www.fbts.com/salvia-x-elk-butter-light.html

Salvia 'Hot Lips' sometimes has all white flowers, sometimes red/white flowers and sometimes has all red flowers. Not a FBTS intro, but they carry it. http://www.fbts.com/salvia-microphylla-hot-lips.html

FBTS has another intro, Salvia x jamensis 'Full Moon', that is a pale creamy yellow with a touch of rose. http://www.fbts.com/salvia-x-jamensis-full-moon.html

I can't think of any others right now, but maybe when it isn't so late, I will.

Another white flowered greggii is Salvia greggii Navajo™ White. I haven't seen it available, but just wanted to mention it, in case you see it available in TX.
