A 2005 Plant Select® Winner. 24-36" tall x 18" wide. Salvia greggii 'Furman's Red' (Texas Sage) is a wonderful selection, valued for its tightly branched, upright growth habit and profusion of dark red flowers beginning in early summer and continuing through the fall. Culturally undemanding, this plant tolerates a wide range of soils requiring only that they be quick draining. Just a bit of extra water during dry spells encourages more flowers. Although one of the most cold hardy Salvia greggii cultivars, 'Furman's Red' will occasionally freeze to the ground in Zone 6 areas. It will re-sprout quickly from the roots and crown to bloom on new wood that same year. This is a woody, evergreen shrub in mild winter climates. (cutting propagated)
