A Book of Salvias: Sages for Every Garden
In this first book on the subject, Betsy Clebsch has selected more than 100 beautiful, garden-worthy species and dozens of commercially significant hybrids. Documented alphabetically, the species covered range from Salvia officinalis (common garden sage) to the rare Salvia cedrosensis and include botanical descriptions, information on habit, blooming cycle, cultural practices, and recommended companion plants, and delightful historical tidbits of discovery and usage. In her ardent pursuit of salvias, Clebsch has explored the wild to collect plants and seeds to test in her California garden. The resulting wealth of cultural information offered in A Book of Salvias ensures that our gardens will be exquisitely aromatic.
