Common Name: Baby Sage Family: Lamiaceae (The Mint Family)

Salvia microphylla 'Hot Lips'

Notes:
Very cool and an all time Phoenix Perennials bestseller. This is a fast-growing wild selection of a Mexican sage which is adorned with stunning bicolour flowers -- white flowers with red lips -- from May until frost. But the expression of colour is temperature sensitive. In spring the flowers are usually all red, later bicoloured/hot lipped and in the heat of the summer all white, then returning to bicoloured and then red again in the fall. Will produce thousands of flowers in a season. Well-drained soil in full sun. Hard prune each spring. Even worth it as an annual in colder climates.
