From Greg Grant's infamous cemetery wanderings comes another clone of Salvia farinacea, this one from the Texas gravesite of Henry Duelberg. 'Henry' is a bit taller than his better half (Salvia farinacea 'Augusta Duelberg'), making a 2' tall x 3' wide clump of glossy, green foliage, topped with long 1' spikes of dark royal purple-blue...a hangout for hummingbirds. This phenomenally heat- and drought-tolerant selection is for the full-sun gardener who kills everything else. Soggy soils are about the only thing that will send these to meet their namesakes.
