I'm enjoying this plant. It's still blooming in December, and it's about 4 feet tall and 3 feet wide. It smells much better than most salvias.

Wonderful Zuzu!

I've grown Salvia elegans, Salvia elegans 'Golden Delicious' and Salvia elegans 'Honey Melon' before, but haven't found Salvia elegans 'Scarlet Pineapple' yet.

This is just Salvia elegans. The name 'Scarlet Pineapple' is just a name added by this nursery. It is not a particular selected named clone.

No wonder it looks exactly like my other S. elegans plants. Hilarious!
