I bought these salvias a couple of weeks ago and they were labeled "Bright Eyes". I was expecting red with white spots....but this is what I got when they bloomed. Obviously not red, but still pretty.
Any idea what they REALLY are named? I can't find a match in any of my books....



Thanks for your help.

Possibly Salvia x jamensis 'Shell Dancer'

Like 'Bright Eyes', it's also one of the Suncrest bred Salvias.

There are sooooo many Salvia x jamensis cultivars that it might be hard to say for sure.

Can you get a photo of the leaves?

Really lovely plant! Lovey dubby

As soon as I saw the photo, I knew it was 'Shell Dancer'. I've grown it before and love the flowers.

@Danita thanks for telling @GrammaChar.

Here's the database link to add your photo. Autumn Sage (Salvia 'Shell Dancer')
