Salvia chiapensis

  • Salvia  chiapensis

Native to cloud forests of Chiapas,Mexico,this lovely sage will not survive freezing cold winter temperatures.With a little protection we have kept it going through many winters. Deep green, glossy leaves grow on decumbent stems 1 1/2 - 2 ft. tall and wide. The bright fuchsia-pink flowers begin blooming in summer and continue into fall and beyond. Best with light shade and regular water. Excellent container plant or hanging basket. Bring into a greenhouse before frost,or in milder zones, place under an eave or other protected spot where it has survived for us outdoors even with freezing temperatures. Hummingbird favorite.
