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.

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:
