Talking about Sage (Salvia 'Elk Ruby Ruby'), Marilyn wrote:

Flowers By The Sea of Elk, CA, has a new introduction that appears to be another exciting and "must-have" salvia. The flowers are a deep ruby red color that is stunning.

It's listed as hardy to zone 7. I've grown some of his Elk salvias and have found that they are hardy to my zone 6a garden and were grown in containers. I hope to be adding this new one to my garden this year. Looks like "another winner of a salvia."

Talking about Hybrid Rose Leaf Sage (Salvia 'Mulberry Jam'), Danita wrote:

'Mulberry Jam' is an interspecific hybrid between Salvia involucrata and an unknown species. The other parent is speculated to be Salvia chiapensis. It was found in the California garden of Betsy Clebsch. It is a gorgeous Salvia that grows to around four feet tall and starts blooming in midsummer, continuing until frost. Emergence after winter doesn't occur until late spring. Plants that are overwintered without freezing can start blooming even earlier. It is less brittle than its S. involucrata parent but can still benefit from protection from strong winds. It is very popular with hummingbirds and hummingbird gardeners.

Talking about Clary Sage (Salvia viridis 'Marble Arch Blue'), HoosierHarvester wrote:

Seeds can likely be winter sown in warmer climates, as they do self-sow lightly here in growing zone 5. Perhaps lightly because seeds aren't 100% winter hardy here? Seeds prefer light for germination, so surface sowing is best by gently pressing seeds into soil/mix. Seeds generally germinate when temperatures are 68-70°F or above.

The only difference I can see in the Salvia 'Marble Arch' series and Salvia 'Clary' series, is plant height. To me, the flowering bracts look the same.

Talking about Sage (Salvia nemorosa 'Mainacht'), Skiekitty wrote:

Can't kill this plant. Grows no matter where: full sun or even in mostly shade! Tolerant of extreme temperature (from negatives to 100+), drought/flood situation. This plant doesn't care! After first flush of blooms, give it a severe trim and you'll be rewarded with a new flush about 6 weeks later. Can get leggy and sprawling, though. It can look like something was lying in the middle of it and squished it flat.
