Grown more for the foliage than the bloom, this plant is native to eastern USA. Listed as hardy to zone 6, it might be hardy to zone 5 if sited carefully. It likes a little afternoon shade in warmer areas.

Talking about Salvia (Salvia coccinea 'Vermilion'), jg0613 wrote:

I purchased the plant from Flowers by the Sea. Transplanted from nursery pot into ground early June 2018. It is in a location that gets sun all morning up till about 2pm and light shade after that. This is a tall plant, stems stay fairly upright and it has gotten lots of stems. It bloomed earlier in the summer, then had a period of no blooms but growth and is now blooming again, started about a week ago but now really taking off! The plant is over 4 feet tall at the shortest and a bit over 5 feet at the tallest (and still growing). The width was about 2-3 feet (a couple of stems broke in high winds during a thunderstorm and I pruned a few more off). The blooms are a pretty orange and plentiful when in bloom. Hummingbirds love it. This requires more water than some Salvias. We had pretty severe drought and very hot temps through June and July. Since August we have seemed to more than catch up on rain and temperatures more normal. The plant has stayed healthy through it all. It does set seed- a few small seedlings have already appeared but they won't get large enough before frost. Hoping seed may overwinter and will have volunteers of this next year as I have experienced with the S Coccinea Summer Jewel Red. If not I think I would grow it again as an annual. With the nice tall form and lovely blooms, I recommend it!

Talking about Salvia (Salvia coerulea 'Sapphire Blue'), jg0613 wrote:

I ordered one plant from Flowers by the Sea -- planted in ground in location receiving morning sun and light shade in afternoon. This is the first year I have grown this particular S Guaranitica. The plant needed a lot of supplemental watering June, July, and into August as we had moderate to severe drought and higher than normal temperatures, but since mid to late August we have had frequent rains, some accompanied by storms with strong winds. This was very late to bloom -- do not know whether this is usual for this Salvia or the result of our unusual summer. During June, July, and early August it grew fast and filled out nicely with good upright habit and got about 4 feet tall. With the rains and wind many of the stems began to sprawl sideways, so pruned the worst. Buds began about third week of August with first blooms the last week of August. But, oh my, they were worth waiting for: very deep blue with a hint of deep purple! Blooms are becoming numerous and are large. I am hoping that it survives the winter and returns next year. Definitely would grow it again whether this one returns next year or not.Hummingbirds are still around and they love it. I consider its performance adequate given the challenging weather this year, not to mention rampant spider mites! Definitely recommend this Salvia!
