Salvia adenophora * Oaxaca Red Sage

Salvia adenophora is a long blooming sage almost never without flowers except during the coldest weeks of Winter. In our garden Salvia adenophora has grown 5 feet tall and gradually spread to 8 feet. Salvia adenophora spreads by underground rhizomes. Our record breaking freeze a few years back knocked off the foliage. Temperatures hovered in the mid teens several nights running. Salvia adenophora was back and blooming inside the month. Salvia adenophora is a good addition to the hummingbird garden and the butterfly garden
