Windwalker royal red salvia, Salvia darcyi x S. microphylla \'PWIN03S\', Plant Select
Hummingbirds LOVE this new perennial salvia from Kelly Grummons, Denver area plant breeder and nurseryman. WINDWALKER® royal red salvia is a robust grower with graceful stems crowned with blood-red flowers from late June through October. Beautiful planted with WINDWALKER® big bluestem grass. Xeriscape.

Tips from the pros: Prefers well-drained soil. A hot, dry site will produce a more compact plant as opposed to one with a floppy appearance when given too much water. Cut stems down to 6-8" in early summer once the new growth emerges.
