Perennial for 2004

Autumn Sage

Salvia greggii 'Pink Prefernce'

‘Pink Preference’ is a cultivar of Autumn Sage that was selected for its bright pink flowers. Like the species, it is a heat and drought tolerant perennial that starts blooming in the spring but blooms most in the autumn as other flowers in the garden start to fade.
