Salvia microphylla 'Cherry Pink', 10 seeds
If you love Autumn Sages (Salvia greggii) but want a plant that is also tolerant of shade, try this rarely offered one. A woody perennial shrub, it has the tiny, triangular, margined, black-currant scented leaves and flowers that are similar in shape to those of S. greggii. This particular cultivar of Salvia microphylla has brilliant cherry pink flowers contrasted by purplish calyx. In bloom, it is attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies. Cultivar name is not known. If anyone has any suggestions with regards to its identity, please do let me know. Thanks! Hardy from zone 7 onwards. 2 feet tall and wide. Full sun to half-day of sun, and any well-drained garden soils. Drought tolerant when established, can take extreme sun and heat. Also tolerant of regular water on a weekly basis if you want to interplant this with other plants that need more water. Fresh seeds, harvested 09/2016.
