Due to numerous requests from around the world, after Robin's passing on January 2nd. 2020, it has been decided to continue, for the present at least, to keep the site active.

I offer my sincere thanks to all the wonderful and humbling tributes received from all his friends and fellow salvia nuts.

This site is still a great source of information to which I may be able to add, in future. He is indeed greatly missed after fifty years of a wonderful life together.

The UK's foremost Salvia website....

I started collecting salvias more than 20 years ago and now have one of the largest collections in the UK. For a long time I had thought that salvias were the rather gaudy, small, red plants commonly used in bedding schemes. On visiting a friend's garden, I saw a spectacular Salvia sclarea var. turkestanica and I was hooked.

The aim of this website is to share my observations and pictures of my favourite salvias.

About me page....

Here you can read a little about how my interest in Salvias started and the aims of this website.

On this page I will always highlight the latest photographs and descriptions to go on display in the photo-gallery.

Gallery page....

This is where you will find all the Salvia photographs and descriptions. They are arranged alphabetically to make it easier for you to find the particular Salvia that you may be looking for.
