Salvia, Victoria is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Long Lasting! These seeds germinated in my window in March and I wish I had planted more! They were absolutely stunning in color and height. We get a lot of wind but the sturdy, woody stems held up and have made it thru two light frosts. Still blooming in Colorado in November! Wonderful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy & Beautiful This salvia was grown in my mixed flowers beds along with Blue Bedder salvia. It was wonderful having the two different height salvias. These seeds are easy to germinate and grow into hearty strong plants that provide beautiful flower spikes of rich purple. I like to have different flower forms and these provide a beautiful vertical form amongst the garden flowers that grow in mound or spreading form. Will be an annual choice amongst the annual flowers I grow!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I agree in New Jersey I have grown this plant for 5 years now, and it has not disappointed me. The winter of 2005-2006 was very mild, and most of the plants survived! You can also try taking cuttings and overwintering them indoors, but watch out for aphids and other pests.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Salvia Review Salvia is a proven performer in my garden with it's only findable fault being that it needs to be dead-headed often to encourage new flower shoots. Bees love 'em, which help the rest of the garden, and they last well as cut flowers! Easy to grow and not "needy" by any means in the water department. Heat tolerant!
