In my yard and weather conditions at least, this plant spreads like wildfire. I started out with three a couple of years ago and this spring there are at least two dozen to be pulled up and given away...and I will still have a dozen or more to move to the front garden.

I just love the blooms of this Salvia and so do the Hummingbirds! I have successfully overwintered this indoors 2 winters now and will start more from cuttings :)

This is a hardy salvia. Can be invasive. Will bloom all summer into fall if cut back and deadheaded. Stands up well without support. The hummers do indeed love it, there are humming bird wars over it in my yard.
