An introduction by Ashwood Nurseries, which is in the U. K. Golden leaves, some that have green in them and pale yellow flowers that have a faint pink coloring. Beautiful combo.

Sorry, but don't agree that this is a good combo. Orange flowers would complement the foliage better.

Robin,

I agree with you, orange would look fantastic with the leaf colors.

I like it, but agree a brighter color would look better with the chartreuse leaves.

Hi all, very unusual for me to see a plant of this genus with this leaf colouring. It is about a foot tall and has plenty of buds on it so can't wait to see the flower colour. Have attached a pic of it in my garden up here in Norfolk UK along with the 120 or so others I have. All of my New World Salvias seem to like the sandy soil up here so the garden is coming on very nicely.
