Salvia 'Amistad' is a hummingbird magnet with large, grape purple flowers emerging from black sepals from early summer until frost.
Salvia 'Amistad' is a bold and beautiful sage with large, grape purple flowers emerging from black sepals produced from early summer until frost. Use it as a dramatic summer planting in the garden or pots. 'Amistad' is not that hardy but is worth it because it produces copious amounts of nectar for hummingbirds and other pollinators. Customers come back for it and 'Ember's Wish' and 'Love and Wishes' every year because the hummers love them so much. Treat as an annual or overwinter indoors in greenhouse, house, or garage.
