Publisher Comments:

Salvia is a family of flowering plants that can be grown in all regions, either as perennials or annuals. The range of sizes, colors, foliage, and hardiness within the genus is substantial, with over 900 species and hundreds of hybrids. They are popular for the vibrancy of their blooms and for their culinary and medicianl uses. Salvias are available in shades ranging from white to deep violet that is almost black.

The Plant Lover's Guide to Salvias features everything you need to know to grow this vibrant and fragrant plant. Plant profiles of 150 varieties highlight each plant's type, habitat, size, hardiness, origin, cultivation, and use in the landscape. Additional information includes tips on design, how to grow and propagate salvia, where to view them in public gardens, and where to buy them.

This book is part of the Plant Lover's Guide series on important ornamental plant groups. Written for plant-driven gardeners by recognized experts in the field, the guides offer a great education in ornamental gardening and are abundantly illustrated with inspiring photography of both the plants and gardens that feature them.
