This Dr. Rich Dufresne collection of Salvia regla from Jame, Coahuila, Mexico, is a star in southern gardens. The glossy-green, round foliage adorns this upright-growing woody salvia to nearly 4' tall x 5' wide. In early fall (September and October for us), Salvia 'Jame' is adorned with 3" long scarlet-orange, tubular flowers...a hummingbird's version of winning the Powerball lottery. Salvia regla 'Jame' is quite unique in the world of hardy salvias! Further south, Salvia regla could reach 10' tall...gasp!
