Salvia regla - Mountain Sage

If you like hot colors in the garden then Salvia regla is a plant for you. I have put Salvia regla in the shade, but no more. I planted the Mountain Sage on a south facing slope in a garden with the heat of the inland valleys and it put on a show to warm the cockles of my heart. The Mountain Sage suffered heavy foliage damage at 23° F but is coming back for more. Salvia regla is a great addition to the Hummingbird Garden as well as the Butterfly Garden.
