Annual Salvia recommendation?

Westbrook, CT(Zone 6a)

I have tried several mid-sized annual salvias in the past few years (splendens: bonfire, flare, hotline red; coccinea), and while they look good for a while, they don't seem to last all summer like the seed supplier blurbs say. Can anyone recommend a variety that will stick around at least to September in Zone 6?

Will they rebloom if dead-headed? I've never tried that.
