Salvia microphylla Berzerkeley

Salvia microphylla Berzerkeley is exceptional in the garden. The leaves and flowers are larger and the flowers pinker than the old garden varieties of Salvia microphylla. The variety Berzerkeley makes a great, if a little enthusiastic, garden plant. This plant does as well in light shade as full sun. This specimen is growing on the north side of a garage. I have not had issues with plants producing seedlings or being problems in this way. The Salvia microphylla Berzerkeley specimens in the ground have gotten about 2.5 feet tall and twice that wide. They look a little ratty in the winter so I cut them back and get an early flush of flowers in March. The plants are almost always in bloom through late Fall when it finally gets too cold. Salvia microphylla Berzerkeley is a great addition to both the Butterfly Garden as well as the Hummingbird Garden.
