Salvia buchananii - Buchanan's Sage, Fuchsia Sage

Salvia buchananii is a neat compact plant. The Buchanan's Sage leaves are glossy green. The flowers are a brilliant magenta and fuzzy. Salvia buchananii blooms spring through fall. I have had no damage due to frost. The coldest conditions that my plants have experienced is in the low 20°s F. Salvia buchananii is brittle and should not be placed in high traffic areas. Salvia buchananii came into the western gardening world rather recently. It was collected from a garden in Mexico City.
