Q CAN I GROW SALVIAS IN THE TROPICS?
Bridgette, Cairns, Qld
AThere are nearly 1000 species of salvia originating from many regions of the world. In your climate, consider growing cultivars of Brazilian species, such as Salvia splendens ‘Blaze of Fire’, S. guaranitica ‘Black & Bloom’ or the Mexican S. farinacea ‘Strata’. Plant in full sun in well-drained soil.
