Salvia involucrata (Rosebud Sage)

Height: 4-6 feet
Spread: 4-6 feet
Light: Full to part sun
Soil: Amended, well-drained soil. Drought tolerant once established but likes a good soaking about once a week.
Description: Herbaceous perennial native to southern Texas and Mexico that forms a nice rosette of striking heart-shaped leaves with distinctive beet-red petioles and veins. We would grow this plant for the foliage alone! Tubular magenta flowers cover the plant in late summer coinciding perfectly with hummingbirds’ fall migration time. It’s a veritable hummingbird buffet! Great in the mixed bed. Pairs well with grasses and other prairie-esque plants.
