This salvia was  new and a  star at the first international salvia conference we had in 2008.  It set seed so we have it in Australia but so far it is not a strong vigorous plant although it becomes woody rather quickly.   I probably have not given it the conditions it wants and if I propagated more plants I could try them in various situations.  The backs of the leaves are purple which indicates it likes shade.

It has pretty mauvy pink flowers a lot of the time and especially in cooler months.

Fresh seed germinates readily.

Around a metre in height but not really trialled enough in Australia as yet.  I sometimes have plants for sale.
