I can't remember how/where I got this or if it just popped up wild in my yard. A friend said it was sage. I looked in the DB, and without going through ALL 37 pages searching sage, I'm thinking Scarlet Sage "Coral Nymph" on page 5, ID#92512. Do ya'll think I'm correct?

It looks like Coral Nymph. There is also one called 'Bi-color' that is quite similar.
I could be wrong...

That's exactly what I was thinking. Guess I'll submit it.
