We are really excited over this color selection of the drought-tolerant Texas sage. Salvia 'Lipstick' is also one of the longest-flowering Texas sage cultivars we have trialed. In our garden, it begins flowering in early May and continues through November. Each compact 3' tall x 3' wide clump of Salvia greggii 'Lipstick' is simply smothered in terminal flower spikes of lipstick-red (RHS 50A) flowers, each highlighted by a white throat and brown calyx...a hummingbird fiesta. Texas sage makes a great deer-resistant foreground addition to a grouping of ornamental grasses.
