Salvia x
‘Penny's Smile’

An abundance of rich fuchsia-pink, two-lipped flowers are the calling card of this colorful sage. Forming on the tips of upward branches all summer long, these 1/2” flowers are a popular destination for hummers, making this selection a valuable addition to one's pollinator garden. Fine-cut, olive-green foliage offers a pleasing woodsy aroma. Plants form a dense 3-4' high and wide bush, one that stays evergreen in zones 9 and higher. It's a great way to add a splash of bright color to a sunny bed, without taking up too much room. Ideal for a container too, allowing you to place it for maximum viewing pleasure. This hybrid is drought tolerant and low maintenance, making it an easy choice for the casual gardener. A bit frost tender, it is best to cover plants or spray with Cloud Cover to afford protection on freezing nights. Deer resistant.
