Yes, the seed making parent was probably Marcus, because that was the one salvia in the area.
Although there had been a May Night there too, a while ago, before it got too big and I relocated it, but I suppose it could have dropped a seed or two that waited.
The small leaves, and that 'candelabra' type branching for those blooms stalks is also suggestive of Marcus. Currently the seedling is bigger than the average Marcus though.
The pinkness has got to have come from a 'Sensation Deep Rose Improved'--I had three of them at one time, but two were summarily smothered by other bigger and more aggressive plants with only one surviving last season. It put on a good show last summer in an area not too far away by bee flight.
It will be interesting to see what this plant does next year!
