Salvia x “Amistad”

Sûrement un hybride issu de salvia guaranitica, cette sauge herbacée est apparue récemment (2005) dans un jardin en Argentine. Très florifère et plutôt  rustique (on verra l’année prochaine si elle est toujours là), les fleurs violet profond se détachent bien du feuillage, j’aime aussi beaucoup la couleur des calices.

Salvia guaranitica is involved in this crossing for sure. This beautiful herbaceous sage was discovered in a garden in Argentina (2005). Very floriferous, it’s given to be winter hardy (zone 8), I hope so, I planted it last spring, we’ll see. I did some cuttings as a precaution.
