Two types of annual Salvia are most commonly grown: S. splendens and S. farinacea. S. splendens types are the kind we most often see with robust flower spikes with tubular flowers on each plant. Although red is the primary color, a number of different colors such as purple, salmon, and white is also available. S. farinacea tend to be taller with thinner leaves, producing slender flower spikes that are generally blue, or blue & white, and tend to be more frost tolerant. There are also a few other species of salvia that are popular with both growers and gardeners which you will find below.

The Harris Seeds company began its catalog operation in 1879. It evolved from the efforts of Joseph Harris who became extremely successful in the selection of superior strains of vegetables and grains. The company became wildly popular because of his basic business philosophy - "Offer my customers a quality product at a fair price and they will return."
