Salvias

 

Salvia is the largest genus of plants in the mint family, unhealthy Lamiaceae, tadalafil with approximately 900 species of shrubs, herbaceous perennials, and annuals. It is one of three genera commonly referred to as sage. Sage generally refers to Salvia officinalis ("common sage"); however, it can be used with modifiers to refer to any member of the genus. The ornamental species are commonly referred to by their scientific name Salvia.

 

The genus is distributed throughout the world, with the center of diversity and origin appearing to be Central and South Western Asia while nearly 500 species are native to Mexico and Central and South America.

 

The name is derived from the Latin salvere ("to save"), referring to the long-believed healing properties of salvia.

Salvia species include annual, biennial, or perennial herbs, along with woody based sub-shrubs. The stems are typically angled like other members in Lamiaceae. The flowers are produced in spikes, racemes, or panicles, and generally produce a showy display andtheir colour range is outstanding, intense blues, vibrant scarlets, soft yellows, apricots, pinks and even the occasional black. Surprisingly there are only a few salvias with white flowers.

 

 Salvias come into their own in late summer and continue their colourful display throughout the autumn when many plants are looking tired after a long summer. Their aromatic foliages, intensity of colour and diversity of form are quite captivating, whilst their speed of growth can be amazing.

 

The best time to plant out salvias is from late May to early June, or as soon as possible after the risk of late spring frosts have passed. This gives your plants the maximum time to establish and get their roots down before winter. If you purchase your plants late in the season, they are best kept frost free and planted out the following spring.

 

Salvias have few demands, but some are brittle and require support when planted out in an open or windy position. The frequent removal of old flower heads will promote lots more new flowers. Do not be tempted to trim back and tidy your established salvias until late spring, when the new growth has started and the risk of frosts has passed.
