I did a post a few weeks back about my long, lost salvia that I thought wasn't returning this summer but then surprised me! Love those kind of surprises! It is now in it's early blooming stage. I think in another week or two it should look real good. If you want to attact hummingbirds to your yard, this is the plant for you.
In the bottom picture I tried to get a pic of the bloom. It is actually more purple than it looks in this picture. I have it planted in the back yard next to some pink and purple angelonias. Sorry for the blurriness.
