Salvia x jamensis

Indescribably gorgeous velvety plum flowers are the calling card of this hardy “Sage”. Flowering from June to first frost, plants produce glowing, hooded 2-lipped flowers much beloved by hummingbirds. A bushy evergreen sub-shrub with aromatic inch-long ovate green leaves, this sun lover hailing from Mexico gets to about 2’ tall and wide. You’ll want to show off this beauty so plant it along a well-traveled walkway or in a well-placed container. Like most Salvias it wants fertile, freely draining soil to be happy. Protect from hard frosts, cold, drying winds and excessive Winter wet. Deer resistant.
