The shovel-shaped and lightly scalloped leaves of Salvia 'Silke's Dream' (Art Petly) remind us that this is a cross between S. darcyi and S. microphylla. It is the relatively large, brilliant red coral flowers with burgundy calyces that keep distracting us, however. They are so showy and bloom for such a long time that we do not care if this sometimes does not make it through our wet winters. Drainage is a must for Pacific Northwest gardeners. Predictably, Hummingbirds love it.
