Salvias, commonly known as sages, grow throughout temperate and subtropical parts of the world, from sea level to altitudes of more than 11,000 feet (3400 meters). They occur in many forms: perennial, biennial, annual herbs, and evergreen or deciduous shrubs.?
For salvia enthusiasts and gardeners interesting in expanding their gardens, the Potting Shed will feature several unusual varieties. Examples include the Saliva africana-lutea, This beautiful and unusual Sage has rusty orange flowers on a 3 to 5 foot tall, bushy plant.
