Salvia microphylla Hot Lips Salvia

Hot Lips Salvia Flowers

The stunning bi-color flowers of Hot Lips Salvia are surpassed only by the rugged nature of the plant itself.  Growing to 2 or 3 feet, this salvia makes a good choice for smaller gardens. As you can see by the stem on the right it can be a little hard to describe the flower color. Individual flowers can range from pink to white with a variety of combinations of these colors or single colors appearing throughout the plant.  Sometimes we think there are more solid red flowers in the spring and then sometimes it seems like there are more in the summer. As yet, no distinct pattern of when to expect more bi-color flowers than solid flowers has emerged.

We do know that Hot Lips Salvia is a hummingbird favorite and a garden show piece.
