Salvia gesneraeflora, 10 seeds
Salvia gesneraeflora is a highly desirable perennial with very attractive, huge, vivid red, softly hairy flowers and green calyx. It is a very valuable, multi-branched plant 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-shape leaves. This one is the species with the green calyx, not the cultivar "Tequila" with black calyx nor the mountain form with dark red calyx. 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. Hard-to-find seeds, harvested 06/2017.
