Well, here is the dilemma--last year I planted red salvia....and it did really well. Easy and quick to flower. I thought it would come back from the seeds, and I do see about 3 plants coming up, but I think some critters (ants) carried off the seeds. This year came along and the Iris' bloomed...oh that is what I want to plant! Well, maybe----now I am back to salvias...well maybe one more iris. Or two...I just have to find a little spot to plant them in. The Salvias last all summer and the Iris last for about a month.
