Salvia involucrata (Rosebud sage)
Here is a salvia that we tried for the first time in 2004. Like some of the other
prime hummingbird flowers, this bloomed during the height of the southward
migration in August and September. The hummers used this flower extensively, and
it was quite a pleasing sight to see this. We will definitely include this in our hummingbird
garden every year. This plant is available from
Goodwin Creek Gardens.
The picture above shows good detail of the flowers, however the colors are somewhat
washed out by the camera's flash. The picture below is a better representation
of the flower's colors.
