Salvia darcyi x microphylla "Silke's Dream"
I fell in love with this beautiful garden sage the first time I saw it. Considered a cross between Salvia darcyi and Salvia microphylla and discovered by Art Petty of Austin, Texas, " Silke's Dream" couldn't be prettier or easier to grow. This beautiful garden sage grows to about two feet tall and three feet wide in full sun to partial shade and is drought tolerant, once established, and smothered in two-lipped, red/orange blooms from summer through fall. It is deer resistant, but the hummingbirds, and bees will thank you for it. Zones 7-10. Quarts.
