Drought-Resistant Salvia

Versatile, drought tolerant as well as deer and critter resistant, there is a salvia perfect for your garden. Whether you need plants that are tall or short, need sun or shade, or you want a certain color, you can find a type of salvia to meet your needs. Find out more about the salvias that thrive in our often difficult climate and conditions. 

Although most salvias appropriate for our area are drought tolerant or have moderate water needs, it’s important to remember, as with all plants, that they are only drought tolerant once established. New plantings require a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish the deep, healthy roots that will make them water-wise as mature plants.
