I really like the bright red colour of these salvia. However, as in my previous experience, it takes a long time for it to rebloom, even after removing the spent flowers. I get maybe two or three flushes of flowers in a season.

I have grown these plants for the past 3-4 yrs. In our area, since we've not had much rain, I water them about every 3-4 days. Pinching off the blooms about ever 2 weeks causes them to bloom more and also causes the plant to grow larger. This attracts many humming birds!! They're fun to watch!
