Product Description

 

Scarlet Sage / Salvia coccinea

|50 Seeds|

 

Salvia Hummingbird Lady In Red are considered one of the top plants for attracting hummingbirds.  True red tubular flowers adorn the stems and can bloom well into November despite a hard frost. At the same time, they can give your garden a bold new look, also occasionally referred to as Texas sage or tropical sage. A perennial in its native habitat from Central America to the southeastern US, scarlet sage is used as an annual or bedding plant in cooler climates. Several cultivars offer bright and pastel blooms on sturdy plants. Scarlet sage is an vase-shaped to upright subshrub in its native range, but because it is fast growing it also makes a good bedding plant in colder areas where it is not hardy. Plants grow 2-4 feet tall and up to 2 ½ feet wide, branching readily. Flowers are produced in loose whorls in an upright, terminal racemose inflorescence up to 10 inches long.  50 Seeds Per Package. 

 

Tips on How to Grow Salvia from Seeds

Germination

  • Optimum conditions for seedling development that begins the day the crop is sown until cotyledon expansion.

  • Expect radicle emergence 3 – 20 days.

  • SOW INDOORS 10-12 weeks before last frost. 15-20 days to germinate.

  • Do Not Cover Seeds, just press lightly into very moist soil and maintain moisture levels. If you are watering indoors do so from below, (sub-irrigate.) Keep at 72-75°F. 

  • Light is necessary for germination. 
  • TRANSPLANT into your outdoor garden after danger of frost. Space outside12-14" apart. Spacing is variety specific and all information is on our packs.
  • Moisture: Very moist for days 1 – 3 or until radicle emergence. On days 4 – 7 reduce moisture to moist . Once actively growing, begin alternating between moisture levels wet and medium . Allow media to approach dry before re-saturating to level .
  • SOW OUTDOORS- USDA zones 1-8 start indoors as an annual.
  • for USDA zones 8-10 sow seed directly outdoors in the space where you want it to grow as a perennial.
  • Light: Full sun.
