‘Maraschino’ bush sage is a superb Salvia that is irresistible to hummingbirds and gardeners alike.

The flowers bloom nonstop through the first hard frost, and the leaves are sweetly fragrant.

Description

The luscious cherry colored flowers begin in early summer and continue through fall until hard frost. A cross between Salvia microphylla and Salvia greggii, Maraschino enjoys garden conditions with enriched, well-drained soil and regular irrigation during hot, dry weather. Unlike most Salvia greggii varieties, Maraschino prefers afternoon shade in hotter climates.

Salvia ‘Maraschino’ blooms heavily in the spring, sporadically in the summer, and then heavily from September through November…bright velvet-red flowers and a hummingbird party
