This hybrid from South Carolina garden designer, Frances Parker, is a cross between Salvia leucantha 'Midnight' x Salvia elegans (Pineapple sage). Frances rescued the young seedling from her lawn just ahead of the mower and named it for her young grandson, Anthony, who was 1 year old at the time (1994). Salvia 'Anthony Parker' makes a compact, 3' tall x 8' wide clump that is covered, from late September until frost, with 1' long, terminal, dark purple flower spikes. The purple spikes are adorned with dark purple calyxes as well as dark blue-purple (RHS 89A) flowers...a hummingbird favorite. As you can imagine, the floral effect is...dark purple. You will love this superb salvia!
