The other one is very red, actually - it looks pink to you? I thought it might be coccinea?
Perhaps my photo colors do not come true enough. It was hard to get the PM picture, because the flowers 'nod' a little and the light washes things out. I have a beautiful rosa Banksiae 'lutea' and cannot for the life of me get that lovely butter yellow color in a photo.
Thanks, Marilyn. What does a greggii look like? lol Is it just something you pick up after a while?
Sherry, drdon really had a bumper crop of salvias last year. He was so generous and so many of mine died in the heat - I just couldn't protect them enough to get started. I'll have to get some little umbrellas I can spike into the ground!
Annette, drdon might be sending you the seeds on that one if you're trading - let me know when we get it identified if you still need seeds.
I think it might be lavender growing with it--if you look at the silvery leaves in the bottom corner they look exactly like lavender and I think those flowers are coming from there. Of course Marilyn will know for sure!
To the far right is Salvia leucantha in all purple, then the Salvia greggii 'Hot Pink', Lavender (can't remember the name for sure, I have to look at the tag), behind those two is Salvia greggii 'Dark Dancer', on the left side of the pic is Salvia greggii 'Flame' and behind that is Agastache 'Red Fortune'.
I'm very happy to say that I see new leaves on both the 'Hot Pink' and 'Dark Dancer'. ;-)
Well, there you go, see? I need help... lol
I have three different lavenders growing and they don't look ANYthing like that.
I think it was the coccinea I looked up in Plant Files and I've never seen so many different looking plants under the same name!
Think I'll just keep growing what I like and keep a list. :-(
