There are many Salvia greggii hybrids available on the market today, each with a unique variation on flower size and color, temperature preference, vigor, and stamina. Red Velvet Autumn Sage is a cultivar favored for its large, deep-red flowers and outstanding heat tolerance. This sun-loving perennial can be evergreen through milder winters, and the foliage has a pleasant sage aroma that rabbits dislike. Hummingbirds and occasional butterflies love the non-stop show of crimson flowers that bloom from early spring until the first winter frost.
