Beautiful pale yellow flowers. From looking at the database entry, I'm surprised that a greggii is listed as hardy to zone 9a. Looks only to be available in Europe at this time when I did a google search.

That's a shame, it surely is pretty.
You can tell a lot about a person by the way they handle these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

There are similar or better clones here in the states. No true yellow Salvia greggii though. Any yellow flowered form of the Mountain Sage / Autumn Sage group are likely complex hybrids. This article discusses yellow in these plants:
