Started this from seed in 2010. Perennial, has survived sustained freezing temps in the 20's, ice and snow very well. Did not bloom the first year from seed, waiting to see 2011 progress. Probably best for a full sun area with lots of room to grow and spread. Seems to be hardy in dry hot conditions like many sages/salvia. overall, nice looking large foliage, would not choose for high attractiveness.

This is an excellent plant for a dry hillside. Flowers in winter time. After in finishes flowering you can cut it back and new shoots start growing. Gray color of the leaves and the red flower color go well with other mediterranean plants. Mine is about a year old, gone through two flowering seasons and is about 3 feet tall.
