This was one of the selections personally chosen by wife, Rosanne. She loved the look of the flowers and immediately thought of “Hot Lips” Houlihan from M*A*S*H. That’s a television write for you, I guess. This will be a great waterwise plant for the front garden, which we are converting from thirstier plants that are quite stressed by our drought conditions.
Hot Lips Sage
Salvia microphylla ‘Hot Lips’
Unique and striking selection with unusual two-toned flowers. Hummingbirds and butterflies are attracted to the blooms that appear continuously through the hottest of summers until frost. An outstanding compact, carefree shrub for waterwise gardens. Evergreen.
Here is the Monrovia tag information that came with the plants.
I’ll share my thoughts on our other Embrace Your Space plant choices over the next several days.
