Thanks to everyone who entered. Our winner is P. Kyriakides from NSW.
The author’s love for salvias is evident in his anecdotes about seeing some of them for the first time. The book describes 150 in detail, using the American climatic zoning as a guide, explaining the cultivar’s origin, which is useful when selecting plants that will suit your microclimate in Australia. Beautiful photography adorns every page. Only one Australian distributor and salvia garden is noted in the back of the book, but Salvia spotters heading to the UK or US for a holiday, could build an itinerary around the addresses mentioned.
