Salvia microphylla x sagittata
Arrow-shaped leaves, flowers carried on stems above. It sure didn't keep the "little leaves" suggested by its first hybrid parent's species name. As my plants seemed to be settling into a comfortable rosette by mid-season, I didn't expect flowers the first year, but they surprised me by showing off some amazingly vibrant blooms in late October. Not sure if that will be their bloom time as mature plants.
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...

|Salvia lover||Jul 18, 2011||The reason it "didn't keep the "little leaves" suggested by its first hybrid parent's species name" is because its parent's name is "macrophylla", not "microphylla". That's a "big" difference :-). |
Well, that sure would explain things.
