Talking about Salvia 'Amante', Marilyn wrote:

Salvia 'Amante' means Lover in spanish.

Another beautiful salvia from Rolando Uria's Argentinian breeding program. Rolando brought us the wonderful salvia 'Amistad' 5 years ago. 'Amante' is being jointly patented by Rolando and New World Plants and will be introduced in 2019.

Gorgeous flowers and would be a great combo along with Amistad. I'm excited and looking forward to growing this beauty in my yard.

Another winner from Rolando!

Saw this at a local nursery last spring and fell in love with that blue. Planted it along my hot, mostly sunny back fence in zone 9b and it's doing well. Lasts about three days for me as a cut flower. My only complaint is that it smells awful.

Talking about Rosemary (Salvia rosmarinus), tabbycat wrote:

It's mid June and my mature 5 year old plant is starting to produce small pale-blue flowers. It's about 12 inches tall and wide in the top of a 15-inch tall clay strawberry pot. I planted it there 4 years ago and it lives in a part-sun location. I water it with collected rain water every other day particularly for the other herbs in the pockets. All grow well, so drainage must be right. I use a lot of rosemary, so the branches get tipped regularly. About once a month I water the pot with Miracle-Gro added to the water.

Talking about Hummingbird Sage (Salvia coccinea Summer Jewel™ Lavender), tabbycat wrote:

I got seeds from Alana in Jan. 2017. They grew beautifully all summer into fall. I let them reseed naturally and they returned this spring and started blooming on June 1st. They grow at the base of a birdbath, mixed with the 'Summer Jewel' Red, White, and Pink I got as a seed mix in a seed swap here last November.

Talking about Blue Anise Sage (Salvia coerulea 'Black and Blue'), tabbycat wrote:

Mine has its 1st flowers of 2018 now, on June 15th. They are a beautiful blue rarely seen in the plant world! I grow it in a large pot in morning sun, but with filtered afternoon light. They fainted every afternoon in full sun no matter how much water they got. They will bloom most of the summer on new growth. I bring them back and forth in my garage in winter when temps drop below 38*, but put them back out on mild days because our zone 9 winters aren't too bad. They are hardy with no noticeable diseases. Only an occasional snail nibbles on the leaves until I find and destroy it.
