Salvia ‘Lipstick’ is one of the longest-flowering and best-performing Texas sage cultivars we have trialed. In our garden, it begins flowering in early May and continues through November. Each compact 3′ tall x 3′ wide clump of Salvia greggii ‘Lipstick’ is simply smothered in terminal flower spikes of lipstick-red (RHS 50A) flowers, each highlighted by a white throat and brown calyx…a hummingbird fiesta. Texas sage makes a great deer-resistant, drought-tolerant foreground addition to a grouping of ornamental grasses.
