I have in a tub, a paring of three beautiful Salvias.

'Elk Lemon Light' (another Flowers By The Sea intro), 'Wild Thing' and 'Pat Vlasto'.

'Elk Lemon Light' is blooming now and it's a beautiful color! http://www.fbts.com/salvia-x-jamensis-elk-lemon-light.html I see that Elk Lemon Light is hardy to zone 6! With this hot, humid and muggy weather, I haven't gotten the chance to take any pics of it, but every time I see the flowers, I just drool! The color is so yummy that it looks good enough to eat!

I grow 'Wild Thing' in the ground and it's hardy here, but I decided to plant it in a tub container on the patio to enjoy it more and for the Hummers to enjoy it more!

'Pat Vlasto' is the first time growing it and looking forward to seeing it in bloom! It's listed (on Flowers By The Sea) as being hardy to zone 6! http://www.fbts.com/salvia-x-jamensis-pat-vlasto.html

Edited to add the correct Salvia ('Pat Vlasto')



The flowers have more yellow in them, than what shows in the pic.
