The cultivar name of Salvia 'Phyllis Fancy' pays homage to Phyllis Norris who found it at the UC Santa Cruz Arboretum. There is speculation that it is a cross between S. leucantha and S. chiapensis but the resultant plant does not look like either. "Phyllis Fancy' is a plant with many attractive features from its upright, dark purple stems to its pale, two-lipped flowers backed with inky bracts. The inflorescences are about one foot in length which means there are lots of flowers throughout the season. Like most of the salvias, this is a hummingbird draw.
