Sorry, no photo, but it can be looked up. A friend brought a half dozen hybrid Salvias to the gardens to try two years ago. The one the really stood out in vigor and flower production was Bright Eyes. It also appear to be hardier than most types easily surviving some rather cold weather in the winter of 2014-15. It would be one folks in the north edge of hardiness for greggii/microphylla to try.

Bright Eyes is one of the patented varieties from Suncrest. We have chosen not to grow it as there are a number of other varieties that are very close, and we have a (in our opinion, of course) better one on the way soon.

It is a nice red though. The images from Suncrest are doctored somewhat Smiling

Yes, the white eye isn't quite as extreme in person and becomes less obvious for some reason as the season progresses. Around here in a marginal climate we're pretty much happy with any of them if they will grow well and be perennial.
