Salvia sclarea var. ‘Turkestanica’ in July

(Revised 15 Feb 2014)
Salvias that are hardy to my area appear to be rugged perennials that will thrive under unforgiving conditions. Its flowers have that refined and enchanting quality that I really like. So far, I have grown Salvias mostly as temporary fillers here and there; all are from seeds. I do intend to find them their own permanent homes eventually. They self-sow wildly, and can get very annoying for sowing in the lawn, or in between patio stones (and eventually push the stones apart). Many of the Salvias in the garden have lost their identities over the years.

This Salvia has enchanting pink Flowers (even though I generally do not like pink flowers). They are from Jellito seeds.

Salvia pratensis ‘Swan Lake’

This Salvia is mostly intended as a general fillers for the sunny part of the (almost) White Garden. They are also from Jelitto seeds.

Salvia sclarea var. turkestanica

This is an impressive and elegant Salvia. It is a biennial and is supposed to self-sow, but I can only find occasional self-sowed seedlings.
