I love pink flowers. I don't have this pink salvia yet, so I'll have to look around for it next year. I love the fact that it's rabbit resistant, considering all the wild rabbits we have year round.

Some links to see pics of it:

I would not give much weight to the claim of rabbit resistance. This species is rabbit salad. And generally speaking hummingbirds do not use European Salvias. Then there is the claim of Zone 3 hardiness. Don't think so. Marketing copywriters gone amok is what we have here.

Kermit, thanks for letting me know it isn't rabbit resistant. If I get it, then I'll pot it up into a container and hope the rabbits don't get to it.
