    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful but BIG I love this plant and have it in several spots around my yard. However it gets MUCH bigger than noted, especially when it gets late afternoon shade. My plants in sun are 3' tall by 4' wide. My protected plants are 4'x5'!! This is easily remedied with a haircut but they seem to enjoy some room so don't plant too close to them. The bumblebees love them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hummer Delight I bought this salvia as an accent for my blackeyed Susans and hot colored coneflowers. It's blooming it's heart out. Good for attracting hummingbirds!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great garden addition I think this is my favorite salvia, and the hummers definitely agree. It's been a steady bloomer, pairing well with other plants, and has matured nicely. The deer walk on by it which I love. Actually, the deer walk on by everything in my perennial garden, as I don't plant anything they like.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hummingbird favorite I was worried about these when I received them- seemed too small to do much. However, they exploded into three foot diameter bushes in two months. They were filled with flowers all summer, and the hummingbirds adored them. So far, four of my six are showing signs of life, and I have hope for the other two coming out of a dry and very cold winter for these plants. They were decidedly not evergreen in Zone 6, the visible parts of the plant dying in winter. I pruned back hard and have new growth coming from the soil and crowns only, so we shall see. I would be tempted to plant again even if they were only annuals (looks like I won't have to though).
