Info

(syn: Salvia oresbia) This species from Mexico was renamed and officially published by England's James Compton in a 1994 issue of Kew. It was originally discovered in Galeana, Mexico by Yucca Do Nursery collectors who unfortunately received no credit in Kew. When given plenty of room and bright light, Salvia darcyi makes a huge 4' tall x 7' wide clump of heart-shaped, light green leaves. Throughout the summer, the clump is topped by spikes of bright orange-red flowers (RHS 43A), but in the fall the floral show is nothing short of spectacular.
