Additional Information

Salvia

From the Latin salvere, ‘to heal.’ Wide-ranging genus with more than 900 species throughout the world. In the Northeast they range from tiny lawn weeds to showy ornamentals to culinary sage. Members of the mint family, most have square stems and blue or lavender flowers with prominent lips.

Culture: Like full sun and dry conditions, require good drainage. In our climate, all should be started indoors.
