This salvia is a hybrid that occurred in cultivation in Australia, one parent is S. chamaedryoides, the germander sage. The other parent is unknown, but this hybrid is as hardy as its known parent, with larger flowers and leaves.
This plant is happily growing in part shade and sandy soil, temperatures down to - 4 Celcius and up to 44 Celcius ( over 100! F)
