Trish, you look so cute and I loved this video! My Scarlet Sage (Salvia coccinea) spreads like crazy and is going to seed at this time of year too. I've had tons of the little brown "trumpets" and I've been collecting seed and planting them in different containers. LOL, I had to laugh because one time a few years ago I blew into a container, trying to get the bits of chaff to fly out Whistling and a large amount of seeds flew out along with the chaff.

Yeah...that happens to me too Green Grin! Whistling

Those annual salvias do tend to creep all over the place! The greggii doesn't, though. I might get a seedling or two, but mostly I rely on winter sowing them to get a lot more.

I grow a variety of different salvia. This plant species is one of my favorite nectar plants for the hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies. Most of mine are Fall and Winter bloomers though, since I get the little hummers that over-winter here in central Florida. My two favorite year-round blooming salvia are Wendy's Wish and Amistad.

Trish - An educational video for those that don't know how to harvest salvia seeds. I love these videos! Thanks for making more videos for us to enjoy!
