Salvia coccinea 'Tall Form'
I have obtained seed of a very tall form of Salvia coccinea, which was originally discovered in Mexico, so am sharing a few plants this season. These will produce masses of bright scarlet-red flowers with dark calyces. They will grow very quickly and should set seed before winter, although in my garden I find this species can be perennial if grown in a warm north facing spot with no frosts. Will easily reach between 1.5 and 1.8m high in good soils. 1 litre pot.
