Blooming This Month

Author: Share:


With Salvia there’s something for everybody.  Salvia, a genus of plants in the Mint family (Lamiaceae) with nearly a thousand members, is known for its toughness. heat, and chill tolerance, as well as drought resistance. Salvia can take a licking and keep on blooming beautifully.

Pick the right one for your area and it will be a durable plant.  The multiple flowers come in a variety of hues: red, pink, white, purple, coral, blue, and yellow.  They get about 1 to 2 feet tall. Added bonus is pollinators: butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds which use the Salvias as a nectar plant. 

Currently in bloom in the Butterfly Garden of Sarasota Garden Club.1131 Blvd. of the Arts, Sarasota.   Submitted by Kay Weber, Sarasota Garden Club’s Botanical Gardens Chair.
