Here is a relatively new Salvia that has only become available commercially within the last few years. You can obtain plants from Flowers by the Sea and from Annie's Annuals. This plant is like Salvia coccinea on steroids. Similar to Salvia coccinea, the seeds are very easy to plant and germinate. Unlike Salvia coccinea, Salvia subrotunda is much taller (in our climate, approximately 4 to 5 feet) and its flowers are shaped differently than Salvia coccinea. The flowers tend to last for only one day and then fall off of the plant. We did not see much usage of this plant until later in the season (late September to early October).
