Thanks, my favorite too! Do you know how to propagate them by cuttings? Is this the right time of year?

Wow, just beautiful. I'd love to grow these, but they'll probably die in my thick clay.

Yeah like instantly:(. You know which California Salvia might make it up there… Salvia clevelandii “Alpine'. Totally not locally native though. Are there even any native Salvia in Oregon? Maybe on the eastern desert edges? You guys just have Stachys? :)

I'm not sure if there are native salvia in Oregon. (There probably are, but I'm just unaware of them.)
Yeah, I'm trying Cleveland Alpine Sage, as well as “Powerline Pink” Hummingbird Sage this year.

Oh those are both good bets…. make sure you put Powerline pink in the sun up there though. They get so big with all the moisture that if you plant them in part shade they just topple over. :)

Penny, I picked up a copy of Art Kruckeberg’s “Gardening with Native Plants of the Pacific Northwest” and found that Salvia dorrii occurs in spots in the high desert of Central and Eastern Oregon. The next-closest thing to a naive that we have is S. sonomensis, which reaches up to Siskiyou Co., CA. I wouldn’t be surprised if one was found somewhere in Southeast Oregon, where Toyon was discovered just five years ago.

wow! Didn’t know that about S. dorrii. Interesting! I agree, S. sonomensis I could totally see in southern Oregon.
