I tried to add this to the data base and I can not figure out how ....
perhaps some nice person can do that for me or instruct
me as I can not fill out the spaces correctly I tried many times
but the info I put in it does not accept..on this add a new plant..

This is a salvia that is the dwarf variety of Hot Lips or Big Kiss.
I am excited to find this plant and hope to find a good vendor
or seller through some of you on this site..to buy it for next spring..

Here is a picture of it..
It says 18 by 18 inches but here in zone 8
it will grow 30 inches by 30 inches most likely
due to a long growing season..
That is exactly what I need in my flower garden!

I used to have the large Hot Lips or Big Kiss but it sprawled and
got huge and was not compact..so hopefully we can find this plant for sale
Let me know if you do...this winter see it for sale for spring.
thanks

I made a suggestion to add Salvia microphylla 'Little Kiss' to the ATP database and it was approved by zuzu.
You should be able to add the plant to your list now. Thumbs up
