Product Description

Salvia splendens van houttei


Faye Chapel salvia has been a real garden stunner so far this summer, and everyone is asking about the plant. They say seeing is believing, but in the case of this plant, seeing is wanting, whether you are a hungry hummingbird or a gardener with an eye for color.

Faye Chapel is a perpetually blooming plant like few others you will grow. While I wish it was a selection of Salvia van houttei, giving it species status, taxonomists say it is really one of the first selections of the wild Salvia splendens. You can see the resemblance in the flower structure. Faye Chapel reaches more than 3 feet, with long spikes of glorious saturated red blossoms. When you see it, you no doubt will say, “I’ve got to have it.”
