Just planted this last week with a companion ground cover of the same color. Purchased from HighHandNursery. Great plants all around and the Killer Cranberry was full of flowers and so perfectly named it was hard to resist. I'll be photographing both of them as soon as the backdrop is cleaned up, to add to the database.
Here is the companion.

@HamiltonSquare

I love this salvia! I got mine from FBTS this spring. I love the color and mine was covered in flowers also. I've it in a container with two other salvias. I hope it overwinters.

Looking forward to seeing your pics.
