Ratings & Reviews

(Dark Pink Joy Sage) Salvia x 'Alegría Dark Pink' is one of the most vigorous new plants at Flowers by the Sea. Its burgundy pink flowers are supported by handsome burgundy and olive green calyxes.

A hybrid of Salvia dichlamys and S. microphylla, it has remarkable vigor and more flowers than either parent. The tall spikes and large, showy flowers are a hummingbird's dream.

This full-sun sage is adaptable to many kinds of well-drained soil and grows well where winters are slightly chilly to mild. Give it an average amount of supplemental watering if local rainfall is insufficient.  Suitable as an annual in colder Zones, as it grows to a large size very rapidly.

This new introduction is in its first season at our farm. However, we are so impressed with its strength, superior growth characteristics and good looks that we've decided to share it with you now.

Joy Sage is an introduction from plant explorer Roland Uria, an agronomy professor at Argentina's University of Buenos Aires. Thanks, Professor Uria.
