Beautiful!! I think I must get one of these! This species is one of the parents of Windwalker Royal Red Salvia, which I love but the blooms are more a deep pink- red.

I grew it once or twice. Maybe I'll order another one next year.

I have two of theses. One receives shade during different parts of the day and season and does just ok. The other is in full sun and is running rampant with runners. It's been covered with blooms from late spring on and has grow large enough to sprawl out of the raised plot. I'm going to transplant one or two suckers to a place in full sun where it can have its way and reach its full potential. Here is a not so good photo from yesterday.

Thanks for the input. I really want to get at least one of these next year so will be sure to put it in a good sunny location and give it plenty of room to grow!

Your salvia looks wonderful and the hummers must think so too!

Your so right about the hummers Marylin. There are lots of them in this garden. When I have time to sit I'll find a spot nearby so I can catch a more than just a glimpse of them. I tip my hat to you.
