Synonym Names:

Family: Lamiaceae

Location:

Prefers filtered shade in Las Vegas. Native to Texas. by Kathleen Moore. 2005 Plant Select Winner. 24-36" tall x 18" wide. Furman's Red is one of the most cold hardy of the native Salvia greggii family. Blooming in late spring and again in the fall, the plant covers itself with bright red flowers that attract the hummingbirds from miles around. Sweetly aromatic foliage too. A 2005 Plant Select winner. Drought resistant/drought tolerant plant (xeric). 24-36" tall x 18" wide. This is a wonderful selection, valued for its tightly branched, upright growth habit and profusion of dark red flowers beginning in early summer and continuing through the fall. Culturally undemanding, this plant tolerates a wide range of soils requiring only that they be quick draining. Just a bit of extra water during dry spells encourages more flowers. Although one of the most cold hardy Salvia greggii cultivars, it will occasionally freeze to the ground in Zone 6 areas. It will re-sprout quickly from the roots and crown to bloom on new wood that same year. This is a woody, evergreen shrub in mild winter climates.  Information by: and first 3 photos by Country Gardens

Notes and Maintenance Tips: Frost tolerant to 15 F.
