Salvia ‘Wendy’s Wish’

November 2, 2010

A lovely new variety of salvia is blooming its head off right now in Texas. Salvia 'Wendy's Wish' has huge striking rose-colored blooms. Plants grow to 3'-4' tall and 2'-3' wide in full sun.

They are cold hard to about 25 F so should make it through winter in much of the state. We'll occasionally lose them here in winter in the DFW area, but we'll call it a tender perennial. This is definitely going to be a must for the hummingbird garden next year! Now is a great time to plant perennial salvias, along with many other perennials such as heuchera, hellebore, stachys, Mexican bush sage, scabiosa, etc.
