Salvia microphylla ‘San Carlos Festival’

A beautiful small perennial shrub with bright pink blossoms late spring, fall and sporadically between. Selected from a wild population of the species by John and Carl at La Bufa del Diente in the San Carlos Mountains of northeastern Tamaulipas, Mexico at around 3800’. This versatile plant has proven cold hardy into zone 7, but is perfectly fine in zone 9 of Houston. Full sun with well-draining soil is best for good form and heavy flowering. Well-started gallon plants available.
