This beauty has magenta flowers that age to orange-red. I tried to find at least one pic, but couldn't.

For those that don't know what salvia spathacea looks like, here is a pic in our database to give you an idea. I know it's not a pic of salvia spathacea 'Kawatre', but you can imagine the magenta flowers aging to orange-red. What a colorful and beautiful sight that would be in the garden and to hummingbirds!
