Salvia holwayi, Holway's Sage


A wonderful winter blooming salvia with whorls of cardinal red flowers.  Large number of flowers almost 1 inch long and inflated in the center are closely together that expand and open at the same time and making a splendid show.  Blooming begins in late autumn or early winter.  In mild climates established plants may bloom earlier and for a longer period.  If temperatures dip below 20* F the top growth will be damaged, but the plant will come back strong from its roots.  Adding additional winter mulch will be helpful. After the blooming season is over and danger frost is past, prune the plant back hard.  
S. holwayi is an excellent hummingbird nectar source at the time of year when little food is available.  A good cut flower for winter bouquets.  It was named to honor the plant and fungi collector, Edward Willet Dorland Holway of Michigan.
