Salvia care - Knowledgebase Question

Knoxville, TN
Question by wendhamm

I planted several salvias two months ago, and while they're growing (and spreading) like wildfire, some of them have their blooms dragging the ground. Am I supposed to stake them in order to keep them upright? Their stems seem like they can't support the top-heavy weight of the blooms.

You won't need to support the plants upright. It's their nature to sprawl when young. As they gain strength they will hold their flower stalks more upright. Enjoy!
