Scarlet Sage / Salvia coccinea
Salvia Hummingbird Lady In Red are considered one of the top plants for attracting hummingbirds. True red tubular flowers adorn the stems and can bloom well into November despite a hard frost. At the same time, they can give your garden a bold new look, also occasionally referred to as Texas sage or tropical sage. A perennial in its native habitat from Central America to the southeastern US, scarlet sage is used as an annual or bedding plant in cooler climates. Several cultivars offer bright and pastel blooms on sturdy plants. Scarlet sage is an vase-shaped to upright subshrub in its native range, but because it is fast growing it also makes a good bedding plant in colder areas where it is not hardy. Plants grow 2-4 feet tall and up to 2 ½ feet wide, branching readily. Flowers are produced in loose whorls in an upright, terminal racemose inflorescence up to 10 inches long. 50 Seeds Per Package.
