Gorgeous color! I wished I'd ordered three instead of one. Love, love, love this color! I received my two orders on April 27 and that's when I took the 4 pics (3 shown above). The plant had a lot of flowers blooming when it came!

It looks to be a grand and lovely salvia, and I've been thinking of getting a red to go with the purples (yes, I'm one of those). I'll sure be interested to learn how it does for you, Marilyn. Meanwhile, before I order it online, I'll keep an eye out for it locally. Nice selection, and nice photos!

It is a great color!
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

@Whitebeard

It is a brand new introduction from Flowers By The Sea in CA. They are most likely the only ones who sell it.
