Purple Majesty Salvia - Flowers are slightly larger than S. guaranitica. Marginally hardy in Z7b.
Purple Majesty is a joy to grow - Hummer's love it!
S. guarantica "purple majesty" is my favorite hummingbird plant. For me it grows about 5 ft. tall and spreads prolifically. It returns reliably here in zone 8a.
