Gardeners' Notes:

Positive saltcedar On Aug 11, 2007, saltcedar from Austin, TX (Zone 8b) wrote:

While not the most elegant shrub this plant has been a workhorse
in the garden. It has bloomed first among the semi-hardy Salvias,
tolerates flooding, drought, alkalinity, clay and weeks of 100F+. temps.
Never a insect or disease problem and has stood a solid 8b Winter
without trouble. It should be pruned to remove spent spikes and cut
to the ground after the first hard freeze. Attracts bees and Hummers

For explanation of a Negative below see 'Phyllis Fancy' a similar Hybrid that's Not Heat or Cold Tolerant.

This salvia bloomed beautifully in partial shade, but died when the temperature reached 100 degrees.

Positive daisyavenue On Aug 27, 2004, daisyavenue from Long Beach, CA (Zone 10b) wrote:

This is a more new salvia that could be related to Salvia leucantha.

The leaves are beautiful green with veining while the flowers offer contrasting pale pink/white blooms.

It is not suitable for xeriscaping as it does need to be watered pretty regularly or it will droop.
