<i>Salvia microphylla</i> ‘San Carlos Festival’

Salvia

Sage

Thought in ancient times to perpetuate good health, an Arab proverb asks, “How shall a man die with sage in his garden?” Our Salvias are diverse perennials, shrubs or subshrubs. Many of them hail from the Mediterranean, Mexico and South America.

Drought tolerant, reliable once established, and generally pest and disease free, they combine an array of flowers and aromatic foliage in many different sizes, shapes, and hues.

This well-loved captivating Salvia celebrates a festival of color! Splashed with highly saturated magentas and lavish ruby throats, the dazzling flowers unfurl from sable-colored calyxes by the hundreds, beginning in spring and lasting through fall. Each textured medium green leaf emphasizes undulating serrated margins, a somewhat triangular shape and bronzy winter tones. Discovered in Tamaulipas, Mexico, ‘San Carlos Festival’s extraordinary floral abundance and attractive compact form can be staged right up front in a water wise garden.

Blooms May–November.

Size: 2' high x 2-1/2'–3' wide. Zone 7/8.
