Dusky lavender-purple flowers with a speckled, soft yellow prominent lip, this bi-colored sage comes from the mountains of Szechuan, China. It's quite unusual, the flower evocative of an orchid, and arranged on branching stems. Apparently, there are no hummingbirds in China so we don't yet know how the hummers here (that are usually drawn to Salvias) will like it. Notably cold-hardy and adapted to shade, this is a Salvia to grow where others can't. Cataloged by the University of California Botanical Garden at Berkeley. (Unnamed as yet.)

Minimum temperature: -20° F
