Salvia 'Phyllis' Fancy' (Lamiaceae)
Phyllis Fancy Salvia
A fantastic new Salvia that has wowed Niche garden-goers in past fall seasons. Found as a seedling at the University of California at Santa Cruz Arboretum, most probably a cross of Salvia leucantha and Salvia chiapensis. Tall and vase-shaped, bursting into bloom in September at 5-6'. Long spikes of lavender-white flowers, dramatically contrasted with dark smoky-purple calyxes; a real eye-catcher! It must taste great too, because pollinators adore it!
Bloom period: tropical
Container size: Qt.
