Thought is was a Salvia but the background foliage threw me. Very nice!

@krobra Kurt,

Please share all the details regarding this beauty. Can you take a pic of the plant tag (front and back)?

It looks like a splendens type of salvia. How tall and wide does the plant get?

Would you post full size pics of it please?

Where did you buy it at?

I can't find any information on it and I'd like to add it to the salvia database.

Kurt,

Beautiful pic. It's too bad I'm unable to find the name for a salvia splendens 'Serenade' to add to the salvia database.

Thanks for sharing your info.
