This 1997 Yucca Do introduction was discovered 5 years earlier in Tamaulipas, Mexico, in the village of San Carlos at 3,800'. Salvia microphylla 'San Carlos Festival' was the best of a population in full flower in October. This compact grower (2' tall x 3' wide) has proven to be the most floriferous selection we have grown in our gardens. The clump is adorned with hundreds of red-violet (RHS 66A) flowers celebrated by hummingbirds from early May through November here in NC...superb!
