Salvia univerticillata, 6 seeds
Native to Chiapas region of Mexico, Salvia univerticillata is rarely seen in cultivation. A magnificient woody perennial that blooms almost year round here in California. The cherry-red, hairy flowers are unusual in that they usually develop in group of 6 in a whitish bract-like structure at the tip of the flowering stalk, 3 to the left and 3 to the right. Then they emerge, and the bract drops off. In the US, this is sometimes confused with S. adenophora but once you have seen this unique feature of this Salvia, you will know how to tell them apart. Renamed recently from S. pulchella. Full sun to part shade. 6 feet tall and wide. Any well-drained soils. Fresh hard-to-find seeds, harvested 06/2017.
