I planted 3 of these in a well amended bed that gets 6 hours of sun, along with salvia greggii, indigo spires and salvia penstemonoides. These were the only salvias that performed poorly and declined as the summer season ramped up here in central Texas, 8b. They did return from winter and flushed a small bloom cycle before declining once again as summer weather returned. Although rated for zone 8, I think 8b is pushing their limits for heat tolerance and sun intensity.

I have several salvia and this is my favorite hands down. The plant is more lush than any others I’ve grown. The flowers are larger and what I love most is the calyx the flowers grow on are pink also so even when they’re done blooming they look like they are.Niya Gross, Michigan, United States, 1 year ago
Gorgeous rebloomer that lasted even through our first snow! I deadheaded multiple times and it kept blooming with vibrant color. Wonderful salvia that I reordered to add to our collection.Michelle Beteta, Kansas, United States, 2 years ago
