Salvia ‘Wendy’s Wish’

Nov 2, 2010

A lovely new variety of salvia is blooming its head off right now in Texas. Salvia 'Wendy's Wish' has huge striking rose-colored blooms. Plants grow to 3'-4' tall and 2'-3' wide in full sun.

They are cold hard to about 25 F so should make it through winter in much of the state. We'll occasionally lose them here in winter in the DFW area, but we'll call it a tender perennial. This is definitely going to be a must for the hummingbird garden next year! Now is a great time to plant perennial salvias, along with many other perennials such as heuchera, hellebore, stachys, Mexican bush sage, scabiosa, etc.

This is a new favorite of mine, though I haven’t added it to my garden yet.  When my father died in March, we asked the garden center to design an arrangement of ferns and perennials in a beautiful large urn to display at his memorial service.  Then my stepmother planted the ferns in a small memory garden. Wendy’s Wish was one of the perennials in that arrangement.

Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things
out pretty quick. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where
to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Many thanks
