Thought in ancient times to perpetuate good health, an Arab proverb asks, “How shall a man die with sage in his garden?” Our Salvias are diverse perennials, shrubs or subshrubs. Many of them hail from the Mediterranean, Mexico and South America.

Drought tolerant, reliable once established, and generally pest and disease free, they combine an array of flowers and aromatic foliage in many different sizes, shapes, and hues.

Racy red blooms, Flowers to fall in love with, Happy Valentine’s Day!

Racy red blooms…
You may be considering ushering some plants with red flowers into your garden bed. If so, we encourage you to be brave and take the plunge! But why, you may ask? For starters, red flowers cast bold accents. Their hot colors add pizazz and passion, while arousing your senses. You can combine red blooms with yellow, magenta or orange-colored flowers to make a spicy statement. If that seems too daring, the addition of green, bronze or silver foliage, as well as lavender, purple or blue-violet blossoms tends to tone them down a bit. However you choose to display them, they are sure to draw attention!

Flowers to fall in love with…
Our Valentine’s Day newsletter includes plants whose blooms range from dreamy pastel pink and lilac to crimson, blue violet and purple. These diverse, easily grown gems have stolen our hearts, and we hope they will charm you as well!

Happy digging! Happy Valentine's Day!
