Blue-gray foliage, dark red blooms. Looks very much like the S. tenuifolia var. purpurea we had had in the garden for a few years before trying this species. Ours have not been nearly as floriferous as online references suggest they should be, so I'm withholding judgment as to its identity for now.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
