shopping at Pinetree was easy. Things came when expected. Several species had very low germination, especially this blue bedder salvia. And the plants that did germinate are still tiny, way too small to plant out yet.
Seeds have germinated very well, looking forward to planting!
Blue bedder salvia looks great in the garden and also is good for drying; it mixes better than most annuals with perennials.
Better survival percentage from germination to bench to garden than Victoria. Longer stems for cuts. Able to withstand occasional trammeling by dogs and toddlers.
