(USPP 12,949 expired) This amazing Salvia leucantha selection from California is a breakthrough in the world of salvias. Imagine a wonderful fall-flowering Salvia leucantha that only reaches 2' tall, but with a spread of 3-4' in width, and you have Salvia 'Santa Barbara'. Whether used as a hardy perennial in the milder zones or as a tender or container perennial in the North, the clumps of Salvia 'Santa Barbara' are topped with spikes of fuzzy purple with a nicely contrasting lighter purple lip, from mid-September until frost...a simply dazzling hummingbird delight.
