Has anyone successfully germinated this? If so, can you share your process and experience? I have had seed sitting in pots in warm conditions (pots in baggies) for about a month and a half now with no signs of life. Thanks for your help.
Hello Dorothy, welcome to the NARGS Forum. I don't have any experience with this particular Chinese Salvia, but found a photo of it; certainly unique with beautiful chocolate red flowers. I wish you eventual success with germination.
The species is found at high elevation (3200-3800 m. Sichuan), indicating it might have a good degree of hardiness. In Flora of China, the flowers are described as blue-purple, but maybe, like many plants, and some salvia, flower color is variable.
