I grew this one in a large container last year with two other salvias.

I just planted this in April of this year. It really hasn't grown much or bloomed much this summer. I am hoping it will do more this fall. I will try to post a photo tomorrow.

Update: We're having rain and thunderstorms today, so photo will have to wait.

Here's the picture I promised. I'm not impressed so far, but to be fair, it's planted between a Hot Lips salvia and Purple Fountain grass and they have both been crowding it. I may move it next month.

I didn't think mine bloomed a lot last year. It was in a large container with two other salvias of similar type. It might've done better this year if I still had it.

Here's the database link to post your pics. Mountain Sage (Salvia microphylla Heatwave™ Glare)
