Salvia 'Amistad' is one of the great perennial salvias discovered by Argentine salvia expert Rolando Uria at a plant show in Argentina. Salvia 'Amistad' first made its way to England where plantsman Rod Richards popularized it before finally reaching US shores. This floriferous Salvia guaranitica hybrid makes a huge 3.5' tall x 7' wide clump in one season...much wider and longer flowering than its predecessor, Salvia 'Purple Majesty'. So far, we have seen no sign of the stoloniferous trait of the Salvia guaranitica parent. The tops of the stalks are adorned with masses of dark purple flowers, each held in a lovely black calyx from June through frost...a hummingbird delight!
