darcyi x microphylla 

Majestic not only for its size - 4’ tall and wide - but this robust grower also satisfies the quest for a true red perennial. Graceful arching stems are crowned with ruby-red flowers from late June through fall. Shear back to 6-8” in June and flower height will be reduced to 2-3’.  Sold in one gallon container.

Hummingbirds adore Salvia. Bred by Kelly Grummons of Timberline Gardens, Windwalker™ Royal Red was recognized as a superior perennial since it quickly grew bigger, flowered earlier and longer and was winter hardy.
