Salvia flowers are tubular, with two lips, the lower one usually spreading. Flower color can range from whites to reds and blues, and the papery bracts that cup the petals are often equally brightly coloured, sometimes in a contrasting hue, remaining long after the flowers fade. Different species of salvia bloom in different seasons, so you can have colour in your garden every month of the year.<br> + <br> + In California, salvia are visited by ["hummingbirds"], bumblebees, ["wasps"] and ["bees"] -- hummingbirds will defend the sages in their territory like water in the desert. Native California sages appear along coastal areas, in parts of the Sierra Nevada and into the upper desert. Sages can live for 30 or more years and are very drought tolerant. Generally, shrubby varieties and annuals are frost sensitive while herbaceous perennial species -- those that die each year -- are hardier. Salvias require a sunny temperate climate and well drained soil. Most propagate easily from cuttings.<br> + <br> + To learn about other plants which grow well in our ["Davis"] climate, visit our ["Town Flora"].</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Sagehttp://daviswiki.org/Sage2005-03-31 17:32:38AlphaDogUpload of image <a href="http://daviswiki.org/Sage?action=Files&do=view&target=flora_sage2.jpg">flora_sage2.jpg</a>.
