Fabulous cross between S. guaranitica x S. gesnerifolia that captured the best of both species! Fast growing to 3-5’tall and wide (can get bigger in coastal areas), fragrant foliage on upright stems topped with terminal spikes of huge violet purple flowers…hummer landing pads! With a little deadheading, this baby will go from spring to fall freeze. Prefers well drained soil and sun (like most Salvia), needs at least semi-regular water. Also performs well in a large pot.
