This is a third-generation hybrid, amplifying some of the best features of our Salvia greggii/S. x jamensis group. The plant is shorter and slower-growing than a typical S. greggii, and extremely compact. Leaves are small (a half inch or less) and quite dark green. In summer and fall the plant is nearly hidden by masses of the brightest golden yellow blossoms we have seen in a salvia of this group to date. Sun to part shade, moderate to occasional watering.
