Salvia elegans 'Golden Delicious' is a wonderful staple in out gardens. It gives us the zing we need for a mid height plant. I've had them grow as tall as 4' and as short as 18"- depending on how happy they are in their sight. This is a must have for any sunny border.

I grew it in a 20" plastic container on my sunny patio in 2006 next to the green Pineapple Sage. It was beautiful and looked great next to its sibling. Can't remember where I bought it (locally) in 2006, but I'll have to try and get it, locally or mail order for 2008. It's a winner! Love it!

i bought a small plant and it has gone absolutely nuts. it is blooming like crazy again and it is mid-november here in natchez, ms. i just keep on cutting clippings and root it in water or put it in root tone and put it in the ground with good success. i am curious what will happen to it over the winter. it makes a striking bright lime mass from afar and the red blooms are delightful. it has shifted from being a nice specimen plant to a labndscape basic.
