Salvias with red flowers are show stoppers: Bold and often featuring large blossoms, they grab the attention of people passing by at a distance. Of course, many are also powerfully attractive to hummingbirds, which are particularly drawn to red. Many of the best loved Salvias are reds, and the popular species and hybrids we grow at Flowers by the Sea are among the best. You can also discover many unusual, rare and exceptionally garden-worthy red sages in our online catalog.
