    'Elk Pomegranate' is one of my newest Salvias that I'm growing this year and I love it!

    The flowers have a gorgeous color that I can't get enough of. It's an easy to grow Salvia that I'm growing in a container by itself in my back yard. I have it in a spot where I can't see it easily, so I don't see the hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees at the flowers, but I'm sure they are there. It's not listed to be hardy in my area, so if it dies with the frost and/or freeze, I'll be getting another one for sure the following year.

    This is a wonderful Salvia to grow!
