Proven Winners is putting this knockout on garden center shelves this spring (2019). This bright magenta is a "breakthrough" color, according to the PW website. I'm not sure if it's a new cross between S. longispicata and S. farinacea or another induced sport from the 'Indigo Spires' line. According to the info on this database, there was an initial cross that gave us Salvia hyb. 'Indigo Spires', then a irradiation induced sport, 'Mystic Spires', and a colchine induced sport, 'Rockin the Blues'. For sure, it's nothing like the pale pink or lavender pink colors sometimes found in S. farinacea, and there's nothing remotely pink in S. longispicata varieties.
