Discovered by Art Petty of Austin, Texas, this dream Salvia cross inherits the best qualities of both its parents. Like darcyi, it features fantastically colored blooms, and like microphylla, its good-looking stance is short and compact. Summer brings plentiful, 15 in. spikes of warm-hued, dark orange-red flowers and by fall, the round-tipped, somewhat reflective green foliage is completely blanketed by them. Renown for an easy going, stalwart and floriferous nature, 'Silke's Dream' tantalizes us with its passionate display, while counterposing Salvia corrugata's deep blue spires.

We are always on the lookout for good new garden sages and this is the best we have seen recently. This cross of Salvia darcyi x Salvia microphylla was discovered by Art Petley of Austin, Texas. Looking superficially like Salvia microphylla, the 3' wide clump is topped all summer with 15" spikes of rich, dark orange-red (RHS 42A). In the fall, the number of flowers explodes into a solid mass of color. This is a particularly durable and easy-to-grow sage that is destined for stardom. Thanks to Scott Ogden for sharing this exciting salvia hybrid that we admired in his Texas garden during a 2000 visit.
