Those Salvias in my photo were a large type of Salvia splendens called "Yvonne's Salvia". While they look like regular garden Salvia, they grow huge (over 6 feet high) and still have enough nectar to be attractive to hummingbirds and bees. So I am guessing they are closer to the original "wild" Salvia splendens. Below are some pre-frost photos. I saved some seeds - if you want some, let me know via my e-mail above.
In mid-summer, there already about 3+ feet high.
And this monster, close to the house on left, got taller than me by Fall.
But, despite the red color, the hummers seemed to like "Amistad" and "Black and Blue" Salvia better.
However, the honeybees really liked "Yvonne's" so there must be something good in there too!
