Salvia coccinea 'Coral Nymph'
This plant has been a wonderful addition to the annual border this year. It is compact and free flowering. Having grown many of the blue and purple Salvias, I decided to give this one a try. It doesn’t seem to need cutting back as much as the other types.
The Sages have a long history of cultivation, back to the Romans. There are many medicinal and seasoning uses. The ornamental Sages are generally referred to by their scientific name, Salvia.
