Tall Salvia plant with stake-- leave it in?
    #4635708 - 09/08/05 11:19 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I've just received my Salvia plant today, and I was shocked that it was so big and healthy looking. Seems that with most of the pictures I've seen of new plants, they're very small, but this one is around a foot tall! The leaves are wilted (as to be expected), but only one is browning.

It came tied to a stake to keep it upright. How long should I leave it in? I know with some other plants, growing it with a stake can make it weaker. Is this the case with Salvia?

The stake was probably just there for the shipping.  The stake will weaken the stalk and I recomend taking it out once you have planted it.  Its good to hear that you got a nice big plant. Who did you get it from?

Salvia plants do get big, I had one almost five feet tall, but then my dad cut it down, thinking it was a weed. Now I have a bunch of small cuttings :smile:

Peace

I was afraid of that. I hope my plant doesn't fall over when I take it out! It's tall and skinny, with leaves going all the way up the stem.

I ordered it from GreenStranger.com. Price was very good, and shipping was super-fast too.

5 feet tall-- wow! I'll bet you were irritated when he cut it down. I wonder how large mine will grow inside? I'll probably put it outside next spring, but it'll need to winter in a window.
