This Rich Dufresne hybrid between Salvia grahamii and Salvia microphylla is the hardiest red form we have grown. The narrow green foliage persists on the woody stems until temperatures drop below the mid-teens. Salvia 'Maraschino' blooms heavily in the spring, sporadically in the summer, and then heavily from September through November...bright velvet-red flowers and a hummingbird party! Sorry, but the RHS doesn't have a color to match Salvia 'Maraschino'. The 3' wide clump prefers a location that is well-drained, especially during the winter months.
