how do you propogate this from seed ie. what time of the year and how long does germination take and does it come true?

On plant Salvia leucantha



As this is a tender species, my book says to "sow seed in early spring in a heated greenhouse" - it does not mention that they don't come true from seed, so I assume they do.

Were they F1 hybrid? You may have some small, some tall, some bushy and some dwarf. As Bamboo says, sow in the spring.

If it is a true species rather than a named form then it should come true.
