Clearing the decks – this is from an old draft post, taken and posted in February of 2013. Who doesn’t like Salvia greggii? Gardeners certainly do – they can bloom throughout the year, when conditions are right, and all it takes is a little deadheading of the fading blooms. They don’t get too tall or too bushy, and although you might see many insects in their vicinity, they don’t seem to be vulnerable to infestation by pests.

Insects you will see, everything from bumblebees and carpenter bees to butterflies and wasps. If you’re lucky you might see a hummingbird buzzing around, grabbing nectar from the tubular flowers.
