I do not know if the Salvia regla will grow in Tennessee. It is hardy to 7b. It has just started to bloom. It will get a good deal thicker in bloom in the coming weeks.

I just sent off my last seeds but it should be making more seed soon. It is a desert salvia so one does have to worry about dampness. Guys in Austin on clay have a lot harder a time with it. The roots will rot. I almost lost these because three years ago we had 50+ " and I think all the deep roots on this established plant did rot. Then the drought hit the next year and we had 12" of rain. My plant started to loose whole large branches because it had no roots to get the moisture. I cut it back and watered it a bit. This year the drought continued and I never watered it once. I was able to establish more roots. Many of the plants in town never survived the wet year. Hummers like it.

My Salvia Greggii AKA "Autumn sage" is really going to town now that we got our first normal Fall rain. Even the blackfoot daisies are re-blooming in the wilder ares of my native lawn. I have collected a lot of different colors of the gregiis because most of them hail from norther mexico, west Texas and central texas, so they are trouble free and sailed through the drought. But they are rejoicing in the rain and really putting on their colors
