This is an interesting perennial from Mexico, which may survive outside over the winter in very protected, warm areas. Otherwise, treat it as an annual or overwinter by taking cuttings in late summer and early autumn. The dense, terminal flower spikes bear typical sage flowers, which are a distinctive, bright purplish crimson. The soft, slightly hairy leaves are fairly large and velvety. Choose it for a pleasant show in late summer and autumn. The Royal Horticultural Society have given it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit.
