Salvia regla is a beautiful shrub but here in zone 8 it only blooms in the fall and it is not cold hardy.
I no longer have this plant because it is too much trouble, it would be good in a greenhouse or a warmer climate.

I haven't grown salvia regla before, but in 2013 I grew salvia regla 'Royal' in a 20 inch container and loved the bright orange flowers. It was the first time for me growing a salvia regla.

In our experience, this species is hardy in Zone 7. For this to work it must be established, which means early planting and care for the first season and likely winter protection that first year. Once it builds up some wood (it is a true shrub) they are not only tougher as far as cold and drought is concerned, they bloom much earlier. This is a slow grower, but after a few years as tough as nails.
