I wanted to make sure you Salvia fans saw this. Mom and I went to Selby Gardens in Sarasota today where they're having a Chagall exhibit and they've planted the gardens to look like what may have inspired Chagall. But since this is Florida, they had to improvise. I think this is supposed to be like the fields of lavender in France, but they did it with Salvia. It's my favorite picture from today.



Here's a sign with a quote from Chagall on the other side of the Salvia planting.

And you can't even see how happy all the bees were! Hurray! I thought of this forum when I saw that and I just had to share. Maybe give you guys some gardening ideas. All Salvia, all the time! That's your motto, right? Hilarious!

Mostly, but have to have some Agastache, Porterweed and some other plants too! And, I don't have a lot of space either, so I use containers also, but still don't have the space.

Hilarious! Lovey dubby Thumbs up

That is one of the joys of Salvia - most do well in pots.
