Rosebud Salvia 2013 giveaway

Recommended Posts

It's on again folks, it's now Feb 2013 and this plant is huge and needs a major prune. I'll do another 5 packs but you gotta send me a 10 pack of stamps simply because It's all been adding up for me lately and it's not cheap to package these things properly.

Cheers!

I have a few cuttings of these to give away if anyone is interested.

Ok here's a pic of the other clone (which was meant to be in the first post).

I'll probably have to limit it to the first 5 pm-ers or else it will get too expensive for me.

Also if you like that I have A great clone of Salvia dorisiana which is just as awesome.

Let's call it my 300 post give away which I accidentally missed again.

Funny that....

I asked for a cutting because a) it is a salvia to add to my collection B) it has beautiful flowers so finally my wife can stop saying...."yes, nice plant collection but why don't they look pretty and have nice flowers!"

:)

10x 60c stamps? Sounds good, that's a beautiful strain. What's the species? I've got your addy, will send them through asap.

Don't suppose you could stick 'em in a bit of sphagnum for the trip?

Yes yes and yes. Postage is $6.60 anywhere in Australia for packages under 500g so I'll put them in a nice post tube and do them up sweet as.

All I ask is a 10 pack of 60cent stamps to help oil the gears. If I still have some spagnum handy I'll use that too. The last batch went through the post nicely and everyone was really happy.

The species is Salvia involucrata which refers to the flower bracts that wrap around the flowers. Like many other Salvias, S.involucrata has been used as a memory enhancer.

Any seed available?

Have stuff to trade of course.

A memory enhancing herb would be a welcome addition to the psyche-garden-bed.

I haven't come across any seed yet but I will try hand pollination next time the flowers are out.

I also have another nice salvia flowering at the moment which loos like it has involucrata in it's parentage. It's called 'Wendy's Wish' and it is fairly common at bunnings.

Keep an eye out for it, definitely one of my faves :)
