Populate your garden with the beautiful Scarlet Sage / Salvia wildflower, grown from freshly harvested Salvia coccinea wildflower seeds. Scarlet Sage will produce gorgeous, fiery red blooms through the summer months. The small, 1 inch flowers open up along their slender, upright stems. Each plant will grow to a mature height of roughly 12 to 24 inches tall, displaying it's green, triangle shaped leaves for a few weeks until they begin to flower. Scarlet Sage is known to attract an array of beneficial insects to the garden, such as butterflies, bumblebees, honeybees and hummingbirds as well.
Salvia is categorized as a tender perennial flowering plant. Perennials, such as Scarlet Sage, will establish a deep root system the first year of growth. If temperatures aren't too cold during the winter months, the plants can survive, returning the following year to flower once again. If temperatures typically drop below freezing, you may have to reestablish the plants from seed. Scarlet Sage wildflowers can self seed at the end of each season, or you can collect the seeds for planting the next season as well.
Scarlet Sage is among one of the easiest wildflowers to establish directly in the garden. Many gardeners use them in masses for a field of gorgeous red blooms. They can also be added to flower beds, borders, along walkways, driveways and more. As explained above, Scarlet Sage will attract a large variety of beneficial insects, so they are also a great pick in many insectaries and butterfly gardens as well.
