salvia coccinea 'coral nymph'
'Coral Nymph' in early spring combined with pansies. (San Antonio, Tx.)
Very pretty soft pink to salmon colored blooms, fading to white at the base of flower. Easy to care for and spreads rapidly filling in bare spots. Good plant to have..
Fantastic for color impact, hummingbirds love it, and prolific seed maker.

Came as a "weed" in another potted plant. Seeds gave lovely "frothy" pink flowered plants. Very nice
A very successful species in Palm Desert, started as just a couple of twigs.
