Salvia plants

Last winter we special ordered a flower that is difficult to find from GrowJoy. When we picked the plants up in May, they were very healthy and vigorous. All the flowers survived and are now blooming. I will definitely get my flowers from there again next year, and would recommend GrowJoy.

Recently I placed an order for a few annuals from GrowJoy. Within 5 days I had my plants in the ground. They arrived packaged securely and still in moist soil. Are now blooming beautifully.

happy healthy Lady in Red Salvia plants

I received 10 live plants thru UPS and they came in very excellent condition. I watered them and next day planted and they are healthy growing plants. I just ordered 7 more live plants!

Hummingbirds love this Salvia!

I love the beautiful Lady in Red Salvia and so do the Hummingbirds! It's so easy to care for during the season. Its a joy to watch the Hummingbirds fly up to get nectar from the flowers! One of my favorites that I grow every year!
