Introduced by the Huntington Botanical Gardens in 1980, Salvia 'Purple Majesty' has continued to delight gardeners for the last 40 years. This was one of three seedlings from a cross done by Fred Boutin between S. guaranitica and S. gesneraeflora 'Tequila' resulting in a vigorous shrub with a 10-inch infloresence of very large royal purple flowers. The calyces of the flowers are black serving to further heighten the depth of the flower color. The foliage is mid-green and also highlights the wonderful flowers. Those gardening in colder climates need to protect this beauty.
