Comments about Salvia daghestanica Platinum®:
I thought it would get bigger then it is. I have had it for couple of years. It is healthy and I cant believe it grows fine in clay, poor soil. I would still recommend due to its hardiness, look and simplicity. Our winters here are 1-2 feet of snow a year, average of low teens or single digits during winter (Dec-March) and our summers are average of 90's (sometimes in the 100's but not for too long).
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Tips For Growing Salvia
Salvia (commonly referred to as ‘Sage’) represent a huge family of ornamental plants that attract a variety of pollinators to their nectar rich flowers. They are resistant to deer and rabbits.
Western Native Salvia: : It is from the Western US that we find our most beautiful native salvia species. For attracting hummingbirds, there are no finer flowers than the Western native sages. Typically, this group of Salvia prefer ‘lean’ (not very fertile), well drained soils. They will grow in dry clay conditions in arid climates but will rot out in clay soils where there is more than about 15 to 18” of precipitation annually.
Western sages include:
Old Wolrd Salvia: The Old World Salvia include some of the very best, most durable, longest-lived perennials. These salvia are an excellent choice for gardeners across most of the United States. ‘Old World’ Sages bloom primarily in shades of blue, pink and white. They are well adapted to cold climates and a wide range of soils including clay. The European Salvia are incredibly attractive to honey bees, many of our native bees and bumble bees as well as butterflies.
Old World varieties include:
