Gardeners' Notes:

Positive KMAC On May 16, 2004, KMAC from Co. Cork
Ireland (Zone 9a) wrote:

Brilliant scarlet red flowers with protruding white stamens and style give them a devilish appearance, hence the name Diablo.The other part of its name refers to the leaves which are fringed with tiny hairs like eyelashes. This plant spreads stoloniferously and has a slightly more upright growth habit than other Salvia blepharophylla.
