tropical sage, Salvia coccinea
This Christmas color flower is much appreciated by hummingbirds, butterflies and humans. We all work together to make it plentiful. Plant it, as so many have, and the others will come. Tropical, blood, scarlet or Texas sage started out in Mexico, and now grows in AL, FL, GA, HI, LA, MS, OH(?), SC, and TX, not counting all the gardens. Brevard Co FL, 1/27/13.
