|I need a salvia about this size and color.
(Pink Tehuacan Sage)
In the right corner of this flower bed...the flower bed photo is this week
just cleaned and weeded it it...March 5 2020
That end of the flower bed is the driest soil and gets half day full sun
and some filtered aft sun..
I would like to know if this salvia can tolerate very hot days and high
(Pink Tehuacan Sage)
I like Amistad but its a purple and grows too high and wide in my area..
I have black and blue ..the saliva and it flourishes here in the moist
part of my flower bed below..Have had it for 10 years... It gets part sun
in am and aft shade..in the left side of this flower bed..
I need a contrast of red salvia or hot pink salvia on the far right of this bed.
I will be pulling up the two dead butterfly bushes ..so I need a salvia to go
to the right of the green ring that you see..
Thanks Sheridragonfly zone 8 lower end

|I've not grown it, but it sounds lovely after reading the information on the following page:
It would be worth trialing it in your location. Some Mexican species bloom in our winter but the description mentioned it blooms during our spring and summer.

On very hot days the flowers and leaves tend to droop, so morning sun is ideal. Does well when planted amongst similar sized plants where it is given some protection.

|the only salvia that grows great for me in this heat 102 heat index today
in sun from 9 am to 3pm is Black and blue
and those in that family
The picture of black and blue was in may
by sept its a huge salvia here...
and hard to divide and dig
takes muscle power! LOL
have tried many salvias and if I were in zone 7 they would work well.
I can not grow Agastache either ...nor many perennials
due to days over 90 and humid...
No afternoon sun but just too hot.
