|What do folks recommend? Trying to attract hummers. Love my black and blue Salvia but want some red.|

|I'd get both, and mix them up together. They all require the same growing conditions and the more diversity you have the more the birds will be attracted.
The agastache will bloom through hot weather really well, and it's what I planted at my daughter's in Salt Lake City. She has lots of hummers because we also planted a lot of honeysuckle, so when that is finished blooming, the agastache is starting up. I've grown the red/white salvia called 'Hot Lips' which is a hummingbird magnet but sometimes needs to be sheared back in mid-summer to put on another big show of flowers.

|I have the Autumn Sage (Salvia greggii). It grows so well and blooms almost continually, sometimes even during winter. Hummers love them!
Another gorgeous one is (Salvia 'Elk Ruby Ruby'). I don't have it but a neighbor does and it's always in bloom too.
Enjoy adding some new and colorful salvias!
