Salvia spendans is a mainstay

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I have planted this salvia for 3 years in back of a small summy border. It performs reliably in heat and drought. The germination rate was fairly low, but the plants that thrived branched out nicely and covered 10 inches to a foot of width. The bicolor bloom is very attractive.
