Salvia x jamensis 'Sparkle' is a hybrid of the North American Salvia greggii and Salvia microphylla, created and introduced from Plant Growers Australia. The compact, densely branched, woody clumps reach 30" tall x 3' wide, topped heavily in spring and again in fall with short terminal spikes of small, dark, mauve-pink flowers with a tiny white eyezone. The sheer number of flowers creates quite a show. The key to success with Salvia 'Sparkle' is dry soils in the heat of summer and the cold of winter.
