Salvias are also known as Sage. They can be hardy perennials or tender perennials grown as annuals, and they are loved by many. They come in many different colors, such as blue, red, pink, purple, white, and others. Most of them prefer full sun, but some will tolerate anything from full sun to full shade.

|Here's an ATP link of Big Swing. Sage (Salvia 'Big Swing') with info, pics, multi pics that include Big Swing and comments.
ATP info (that I took from FBTS when I added the info to this Salvia in the database)
Plant Height: 36 - 48 inches
Plant Spread: 24 inches
I'd allow 24 to 36 inches for spread, in my personal opinion. Don't know if the plants would get bigger in southern zones or not.
I grew Big Swing in containers every year. Had to replant, also.
