Regla is a Mexican winter dormant shrub (in cold areas)  with vibrant orangey red flowers and calyces in autumn and attractive shiny leaves.   It is supposed to take quite a few minus degrees of frost and withstand drought once established which is perhaps why I killed one with waterlogging in a big pot.

I think it could grow as a tall shrub a few metres high.  Frost limits its height for me.   It is not one you see often any height.

Sessei is a similar salvia with similar growth.   It has lighter green leaves. sessei begins to flower in May so usually a frost cuts it before it gets in full flower in Albury.
