We have wonderful Salvias blooming in the Garden right now.  Here's a duplicate of my post on Natural Gardening.

Flowers of Salvia x 'Anthony Parker'
Pathway to HCC
Salvia elegans & Salvia x 'Anthony Parker'
Salvia elegans (Pineapple Sage)

It's time for wonderful fall-flowering sages, and all the rain over the summer has resulted in dramatic growth.  Pineapple sage (S. elegans) and a wonderful sage that was new to me (Salvia x 'Anthony Parker') - a hybrid between S. elegans and S. leucantha (Mexican Bush Sage) were in full flower yesterday along the path to the Hayden Conference Center.
Check out Salvia "Anthony Parker" -- it's a winner, and hopefully we'll have it in the Spring Plant sale!
