Quick Overview:

An irresistible new salvia that blooms for months starting in summer. Tall wands of cherry red flowers held in burgundy calyxes invite hummingbirds with the abundant open tube-shaped blooms. A graceful open habit, trim 6” in June for a more compact habit. Remarkable hardiness to zone 5. Regular well drained soils a must.
