This large-growing hybrid (S. greggii x S. microphylla) from Pat McNeal is one of our favorite perennial salvias. From late spring and into fall, when it puts on the best show, this free-flowering hybrid boasts the largest velvety red flowers that we have seen on any of the S. greggii types... a hummingbird's delight. Expect a 4' tall x 4' wide clump in three years.
