Salvia gesneraeflora 'Tequila', 10 seeds
One of the parents to the Purple Majesty Sage, Salvia gesneraeflora is the one that contributes to the large flowers of its offspring. The highly desirable Tequila cultivar is especially attractive with huge, vivid red, softly hairy flowers and dark black calyx. It is a very valuable, multi-branched perennial that blooms from mid winter through late spring, feeding the hungry hummingbirds at a time when few plants are flowering. Exotic and spectacular in full bloom too. Fresh spring-green, heart-shaped leaves. 10 feet tall, 8 feet wide. Full sun to part shade. Rich, well-drained soil. Regular watering. Hardy from zone 9 onwards. Usually available only in plants or cuttings forms. Rare seeds, harvested 05/2016.
Our website for actively-growing plants and cuttings (eclecticplants.ecrater.com) is now re-opened starting 6/2/2014. Cuttings of some Salvia species are available there.
