(Fashion Burgundy Sage) Pendulous deep burgundy blossoms and dark bracts attract the eye to Salvia Fashion Burgundy™. Although similar looking to an Australian Wish Sages, it is more compact than the Wishes or the Skyscraper series.
Fashion Burgundy Sage is a hybrid of South America's Salvia splendens (Scarlet Sage) and Mexico's Salvia buchananii (Buchanan's Sage). Both tolerate heat, require only average supplemental watering, and grow well in shade. It's a good guess that Salvia Fashion Burgundy will thrive in similar conditions in your landscape. Plant it in well-drained, loamy soil.
A perennial in warmer zones, Fashion Burgundy is an excellent annual in colder winter areas due to rapid growth and long bloom. Its compact form and striking colors make this sage a standout container-garden choice. Southern California's Green-Fuse Botanicals, which works with independent plant breeders, introduced this lovely, easy-to-grow Salvia in 2019.
For a dramatic display, combine Fashion Burgundy with Fashion Cherry Sage in pots or a border.
