This variety blooms from July until the first frost on plants that often exceed 2 feet in height. Extremely impressive when planted in beds. If you want constant scarlet color this is the plant for you.

Hummingbird Salvia

Every year I reserve space in my garden for these large salvias because the Hummers love them and they are a striking addition. Planted in a swath, these tall flowers explode just when the local juvenile Hummingbirds are searching for nectar.
