Salvia pulchella x involucrata
Our favorite new Salvia, I know you’ll love it as much as we do! SO SHOWY, practically ever-blooming & such a useful size! Spreading to only 3-4’ tall & across, it bursts into blooms that keep coming Fall - Spring with those fantastic S. involucrata style fuzzy, tubular, radiant cherry blooms opening out from fascinating “rosebud” like buds on long maroon stems. Beautiful, emerald, heart shaped leaves add to the glamour & year around appeal. Side dress with compost annually & prune periodically for an ever-lush appearance. Hummingbird heaven! Thank you Strybing Arboretum!
