VALERIE’S VIEW from the Greenhouse!


Lately I have had customers coming into the greenhouse asking for the lavender that is growing ‘all around town’. My best guess, is that they are seeing Russian Sage, Pervoskia atriplicifolia also known as “Salvia yangii. 

We stock many plants that from far away have the appearance of lavender. Early in the season, when the Salvia nemorosa ‘May Night’ was in bloom, we got requests for lavender. We also have another Salvia nemorosa which is also blue.  Salvia farinacea which is also lavender in color. We do have lavender in stock, some English and one called Phenomenal which is more heat tolerant, so if you need Lavender, we have it. But if it is Russian Sage you need, we also have some in stock.
