Salvia Plants
Q.

After first bloom, can you cut back salvia significantly since new growth is sprouting up from the roots at the base?

I dead head after first bloom and typically they will bloom again. Just wondering if plant will continue to grow up from the base if I cut them back to the point where new growth is appearing.

Yes, they will spread, and keep forming new growth from the base. You can trim back to promote this newer growth. They may be a little late to flower, but it will improve the health of the plant.
