Re: Wild thing?

You would love it indeed. Woody perennial salvia - bright deep pink
flowers. Gets absolutely covered w/ them and the hummers visit it often.
Joanne across the street liked mine so much, she ordered herself a
couple. Fairly xeriscape too, doesn't need a lot of water even in a pot.
I've got one that's 2 or 3 years old that is probably spending its last
year in a huge pot. Will have to go in the ground before long. This is
from the HCG catalog.

Salvia greggii 'Wild Thing' Bush sage, 24-30"H X 3'W rated zones 6-10.
Native to West Texas. Will grow in St. Louis MO so it can take humidity.
It does here for sure. Been a gorgeous and trouble free plant for me.
Mine's a good 30" high already, almost as wide.
