Flowering  Seasons

Salvia flowering times can vary, depending on the season, climate and the area in which the Salvias are growing. There may well be a difference between the flowering times of country Victoria and the gardens in the Melbourne Metropolitan area. What ever your location, there will always be  some Salvias in flower.  Select your season or month to find what is flowering when.

One thought on “Flowering Seasons”

  1. Lots of Salvias in flower any month of the year – so much to choose from with the tall Winter flowering varieties in blue, pinks, red and yellow, to all those vibrant never ending small shrubs, again in so many colours that they will always fit in and balance any garden colour theme. There really is a Salvia for every garden, no matter the position, whether it is for shade, semi shade, a sunny sheltered position, full sun or for those really hardy sunbaked position that nothing seems to grow – Salvias will grow there.
