That is such a pretty shade of coral, I may have to look for that cultivar. I too love Salvia greggii for their durability, attraction for hummingbirds & bees and the wide variety of colors.

More naming issues. This one is not a Salvia greggii, not even close. It is a S. x jamensis, a probably complex cross involving S. greggii and S. microphylla.

This might help: http://www.fbts.com/tracking-the-elusive-history-of-warm-pas...
