Salvia disjuncta is a little-known sage, first distributed in 1993 by California's Strybing Arboretum, having collected it from the southern Mexican mountains in the late 1980s. The mahogany-brown stems stretch to 6' tall and are covered in tiny white hairs...as are the folks who originally collected the salvia. The stalks are adorned with fragrant, fuzzy, heart-shaped leaves and topped, starting in late October, with intense, tubular, carmine-red flowers. In mild climates, flowering continues through the winter or until a hard freeze. Our plants of Salvia disjuncta have survived 6 degrees F unmulched, a far cry from the cold tolerances reported from California growers.
