Yoke's Salvia Blog
In the first chapter about the salvias I told the story how I became hooked to them and this time I would like to introduce you to all of ‘my’ Rodbaston ones, of which I am extremely proud! There are 6 'survivors' of the original 7 which is much better than I had hoped a few months ago.
Here in Britain we had Pat Vlasto, Beth Chatto, Beryl Davies (from former Probus Demonstration Garden in Cornwall) and later Christine Yeo to thank for the wonderful pioneering work the'd done with salvias. We now have two lovely salvias to at least honour Pat in Salvia x jamensis 'Pat Vlasto' and Salvia 'Christine Yeo', which is, what I always believed, a tough cross of S. microphylla and S. chamaedryoides.
