Welcome to Sue Templeton’s Unlimited Perennials
Salvia Specialist Nursery and Holder of an Australian registered GPCAA salvia collection.
This site is designed to provide comprehensive information on many varieties of Salvia.
You will find a complete list under the ‘Salvia List‘ section. Most of these are for sale and a complete listing of what Salvias I have for sale is found under the heading ‘Salvias for Sale‘.
These can be purchased directly from the site. When you make an order you will receive an email confirmation, with payment instructions (Bank Deposit through the computer is the most popular, Cheque or Money Order). You have to have the system set up with your bank so you can pay through the computer, otherwise it will have to be cheque or money order. If you make an order please be ready to follow it up, get your payment in and expect your plants to be sent within a week or so. I don’t like to hold plants.
My priority is for you to be successful growing salvias. I try to give you accurate information from personal experience or feedback. I am a world wide authority and can grow most salvias which not many sellers can because of climate restrictions.
Many small growers grab anything they can call ‘new’ without knowing much about the plant. Some people love to put new names on salvias which causes terrible confusion for the gardener and me when you ask me. Many nurseries also make innocent mistakes. There are getting to be very similar duplicates of many of the varieties of greggii and microphyllas which are advertised as being new. Not many sellers even know whether new plants are real spreaders. You can rely on me giving honest information with your best interests at heart and not just to make a sale.
This is a new site and just being broken in so there could be mistakes in availability especially. When I only have one or two of a variety or species I often don’t want to send one to what I think might be an unsuitable growing location and it might die.
Some plants are requested more than they used to be since there are now good photos and I might not have planned for increased sales. I sell the most from March to October. I cannot increase my stock much during winter so stock is the lowest for the year by spring.
I also have available a Salvia Photo CD with close up photos of around 200 species of salvias with some growing information if you want to look at the plants without being on line. Click here for details.
Two sites that will also give you a lot of information are Robin’s salvias (UK) and Flowers By the Sea (California). Naming is often different in different countries so please don’t expect to be able to order everything you see on overseas sites!!!
I have a lot of pages in the ‘Important information’ section to finish so if you have any questions please contact me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org I am hoping that when I finish all the pages I will cover just about anything I get asked.
