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.
