The Lady in Red Salvia Plant bears tall, airy, richly red flower spikes atop a compact bush with deep green foliage. Tropical Sage attracts hummingbirds, but the Lady in Red cultivar seems to be a hummingbird magnet of the highest magnitude, and also attracts butterflies.

Comment: Last winter we special ordered a flower that is difficult to find from GrowJoy. When we picked the plants up in May, they were very healthy and vigorous. All the flowers survived and are now blooming. I will definitely get my flowers from there again next year, and would recommend GrowJoy.

Comment: Recently I placed an order for a few annuals from GrowJoy. Within 5 days I had my plants in the ground. They arrived packaged securely and still in moist soil. Are now blooming beautifully.

Comment: I love the beautiful Lady in Red Salvia and so do the Hummingbirds! It's so easy to care for during the season. Its a joy to watch the Hummingbirds fly up to get nectar from the flowers! One of my favorites that I grow every year!
