'Navajo Rose' is a great xeriscaping plant, and very low maintenance. The rosy-magenta blooms and maroon bracts really stand out.

One of my favorite salvias.

Semi-evergreen in my climate. I like to give it a haircut in late winter/early spring to keep plants compact (at about 2 feet) as I use it as a border plant. I have seen folks in zones 9a and above use this as a smallish to medium evergreen shrub as it can get 3-4 ft (or more) in those warmer areas.
