Sheri, I don't see a cultivar 'Two Toned Pink' listed in the database but I'm sure an administrator will add it if it's a valid cultivar.

I do find a listing for Little Leaf Sage (Salvia microphylla) but I'm not sure if that is the general entry for all Salvia microphylla ... hopefully a database administrator will be along soon and be able to help.

There is an entry for S. microphylla 'Two Tone,' so that may be the proper place.

Autumn Sage (Salvia microphylla 'Two Tone')

I think it's highly likely, however, that "two-toned pink" is a description rather than a cultivar name, and in that case the right place for the photos would be the species entry, to which Lin has already provided a link.

Did it read Salvia microphylla, two toned pink on the label Sheri? We do have Autumn Sage (Salvia microphylla 'Two Tone') , which our database and numerous sellers describe as having red and magenta blooms, a pretty good match for your photo.

I'd say Zuzu's suggestion is better Sheri.

When googling I did find a couple of places showing a cultivar named 'Two Tone' but not Two Toned Pink.

Sheri, one of the links that came up when I googled was a post you made at Daves Garden in April of this year: http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1357219/stating that you got your plant from Vincent Gardens and that's the first link I found with the cultivar Two Tone so your photo might belong at that entry: Autumn Sage (Salvia microphylla 'Two Tone') I think Donna Vincent is a member here on ATP but I don't know if she's an active member. I bet she could tell us if 'Two Tone' is an actual cultivar name; her site is the only one I could find with any information so maybe it's one of her hybrids?
