Heatwave™ Blaze Sage Salvia (microphylla x greggii) - This aromatic, evergreen shrub produces massed displays of dark crimson blooms from spring to fall. Easy to grow, with a compact, rounded habit and exceptional tolerance for dry conditions. Ideal for mixed borders in waterwise gardens, or displayed in patio containers. Evergreen in mild winter climates.
When the hosta "eyes" appear, I mix one part household ammonia with ten parts of water and pour this mixture around the eyes close to the plant. It doesn't hurt the plants, but it does dissolve the eggs that are laid around the roots. It has reduced the slug population noticeably. I also pour the ammonia solution directly on slugs that I see on the deck. Dissolves them right away.
