Salvia coccinea - Texas Red Salvia

Texas Red Salvia is a plant I stumbled upon by accident, but it is now a plant I wouldn't do without in my garden. It is not a plant seen around here in Garden Center's or Nursery's and I don't know why. It's gorgeous, red blooms are a favorite of Hummingbirds and it's color is sure to get your attention.
Originally from South America, they thrive in hot, sunny locations and look fabulous in masses. As I was reminded today, it is simple to start from seed. These were only planted 5 days ago!

If you have a Hummingbird garden, this plant is a must!
