Salvia comes in different colors that are long-lasting Flowers. Of a number of salvias grown in the garden, the Salvia farinacea (blue salvia, or mealy-cup stage). A tender perennial grown as a half-hardy annual in most climates. It has blue flower spikes 2 to 3 feet long. That is very attractive and long-lasting in the garden as they are in bouquets. Others include Salvia splendens, or scarlet sage.
Which is a perennial grown as a tender annual and has brilliant red flowers and handsome dark green foliage? Some flower species are naturally Long Lasting Flower but a little tender loving care (in the form of fresh water and regular trimmings), goes a long way.
Moreover, varieties come in a number of heights from about 9 inches to 2 feet. Choose the one that best suits your gardens. This is such a controversial plant that has even been heard of by an Anti-Red Salvia League. It is often grown in masses and as such can be too much of a good thing. I am not such a salvia snob as to pass it over altogether. But do like it best in small groups with other plants that tone it down a little.
If you want to grow Salvia then it is normally best to buy started plants. Salvias can be started indoors 6 to 8 weeks before the last average frost. The seed must be kept warm to germinate. Transplant after danger of frost is past. However, plant in full sunlight shade in hot climates, spacing about a foot apart.
Salvias can also be sown directly in the ground after the weather has warmed up. But unfortunately, they take a long time to flower when grown this way. They like warm but not excessively dry weather. It needs to be watered in drought unless they’re well mulched. Many peoples like Long Lasting Flowers, so Salvia is best to grow in your garden.
