Just noticed a Salvia (that's new to me) on the net.

Salvia Ember's Wish'

A sister to 'Wendy's Wish'. Another Make-A-Wish Salvia by Plant Growers Australia (PGA).

Here are a few of the links I found for it.....

Hope to find it in 2015 or the next year here in the US!

Don't forget Salvia ‘Love and Wishes’! Both should be widely available next spring from what I've heard.

I want to try both but especially 'Ember's Wish'. Smiling

Between rain showers, I grabbed a few (mediocre) photographs.

Here are the new plants: (please, no one import this, I'll get a better photo later of them both.)

The color on EW is gorgeous and really stands out but L&W has a darker, more subtle beauty, too. Love them both!
When it's not raining, I'll try to get some better photos.

Breaking news - after over a year of effort, we have acquired rights to sell these two. I anticipate having the first ones ready to go by August 15th,
