1 Gallon Salvia greggii: Pink
Salvia 'Pink', a superb selection of the durable, deer-resistant, hummingbird-attracting Salvia greggii, came to us from the late Logan Calhoun, after being grown for decades throughout central Texas. The 2' tall x 3' wide, woody clump is topped with dark, vivid purplish red flowers highlighted by a nearly black floral calyx. For us, the heaviest flowering is during spring and fall months, although it still puts on a good show during summer. As with all Salvia greggii, a dry, well-drained site is best. This is also one of the most winter hardy of all the Salvia greggii varieties.
