I’ve said repeatedly that I’m a fan of salvias. It’s no wonder since they bloom prolifically, are easy to care for, and attract pollinators right and left. One salvia in my garden (among many) that I’ve accumulated is the ‘Blue Bedder’ Salvia farinacea. It’s not reliably hardy to my zone according to many sources. Typically they are hardy to a zone 7 but last winter was not very typical and still the Salvia farinacea came through the winter happily.
I propagated the original two plants from seed and have since added more in the garden through cuttings (different salvia but same method). Both methods work fine but I do tend to enjoy taking the cuttings a little bit more!
