Beautiful flower color. Named by salvia expert Robin Middleton for salvia expert Rolando Uria of the University of Buenos Aries, Argentina.

@Monty72 Robin, What else can you tell us about this beauty? Do you think it will ever make it to the U.S. someday?

Somebody would have to send/take cuttings (illegal!) to the USA as 'Rolando' (the PLANT, that is) is a sterile hybrid and does not set seed.
