Salvia 'Big Pink' is a very nice, large-flowered, pink form of Salvia greggii collected by Pat McNeal near Saltillo, Mexico. The rigidly upright form and very shiny, deer-resistant foliage make this a great plant, even for the small garden. From May through July, and again from September through November (NC), the 3' wide Salvia 'Big Pink' is topped with a stunning array of large, violet-pink flowers (RHS 57C). The flowers are further accented by the unique, dark maroon calyces that surround them...a hummingbird favorite.
