I love growing this red salvia because it attracts hummingbirds like a magnet. It’s been sitting outside in its container on the deck, because I like to collect the seeds for next year, and it also seeds itself in situ rather nicely.
This morning, I awoke to snow on the ground, the result of a nasty storm which is now pummeling us with wind and rain. I looked outside as I was having my coffee, and there, being buffeted to and fro, was the salvia, red as ever, defiant in the face of winter!
I know it’s only a matter of time before it succumbs, but not today. This is one tough little plant.
