Rosettes and Clumps

Many Salvias with rosette growth or those that form clumps are herbaceous but not all.  Some form large clumps, while others form small neat rosette forms.  Usually this depends on the local climatic conditions and  where they originated. Some may be Asian, Middle Eastern, from Asia Minor or Africa.

If grown  in  the suburbs, many of these clumping Salvias  have a tendency  to stay green or show a few leaves during the cold winter months if the weather is mild.
But if grown at the bottom of a valley, in a frost pocket, or high up in  a hilly range, at a high altitude, or on an exposed situation, then more than likely these Salvias will become dormant in the cold winter months.
