I see that this entry doesn't come up in a search of S.o. of which this is a cultivar. It should be linked, somehow, if it is a cultivar. It looks nice. I wonder if someone who grows this and S. o. 'Tricolor' could tell us whether or not they look substantially different? @Kermit I tip my hat to you.

@HamiltonSquare

It is a cv. by Terra Nova Nuseries. http://www.terranovanurseries.com/media/salviasilversabre-p-...

Terra Nova states "Our 'Silver Saber' has a cleaner variegation and a better habit than the old variegated type. Luscious pink tones in cooler weather."

It is a superior clone vs. Tricolor.

We don't grow this one anymore. We have to purchase plugs and they sell very slowly. Hope you can find it somewhere.
