A cross between Salvia darcyii and Salvia microphylla, this hybrid sage is valuable for its very long bloom season. The large red flowers are a shade of red that is easy to work with and blends well with other colors. Growing 2 ft. by 2 ft. this fragrant perennial benefits from pinching and occasional shearing to keep dense. Plant in sun to light shade with moderate to a little summer water. Sages are favorites of hummingbirds and bees and tend to be deer tolerant.
