The easy care plant is water-wise and heat-tolerant; just plant in an area that gets partial or indirect sunlight.

2. Amistad’ Salvia

'Amistad' boasts dark purple flowers with nearly black calyx that bloom early and continue constantly from early spring until frost. The fast-growing 'Amistad', standing at 3-4 feet high and 3 feet wide, is more compact and has a fuller habit then other guaranitica types. Its beautiful flowers are a magnet for butterflies and hummingbirds. This salvia is water-wise and heat-tolerant.
