Salvia elegans (Pineapple Sage)

This spectacular fall and winter blooming salvia was bought on sale from the 1/2 off bin at one of the big box stores. Not bad for a once half dead little wilted cutting. Hummers love it too… Bit it does bloom late, and here in Seattle is kind of half hardy. It survives some winters. It not others. Luckily it’s easy to replace.

The cultivar ‘Tangerine’ I got this spring is not nearly so big, but does have the advantage of blooming far longer- it started in July and is s going strong. I like them both, but kind of prefer the earlier blooming one. If this big one crashes, I may or may not replace it. Probably will depend on if I see em in the sale bins at dirt cheap prices again, lol.
