Elk Twilight's Rosy Glow is compact, petite and long blooming. It's part of our series of Salvia x jamensis hybrids called the Elk Rainbow Sages.™

Native to Mexico and the American Southwest, Jame Sages occur in areas where the closely related species of Autumn Sage (Salvia greggii) and Mountain Sage (Salvia microphylla) meet, such as near the Village of Jame in Mexico's Sierra Madre mountains or in the test gardens of our Northern California farm. Elk Twilight's Rosy Glow thrives where winter temperatures are moderate.

Jame Sage parentage may include other Salvia species as well, which is why these sages come in a broad range of sizes. Their foliage can favor any of their parent plants. The leaves of Elk Twilight's Rosy Glow are typical of the fine, smooth, mid-green foliage of Autumn Sage, which has an airy look.

Although sun loving, Elk Twilight's Rosy Glow does better with some partial shade during peak summer temperatures. It is drought-resistant, but appreciates average watering based on local conditions.

This rosy beauty is adaptable to a variety of soils as long as they drain well. Plant it where you can appreciate its delicate coloring up close, such as in containers or amid pastel borders along garden paths. Butterflies, honeybees and hummingbirds all benefit from its nectar.

Elk Rainbow Sage
A Rainbow of Quality

At Flowers by the Sea, we regularly develop new cultivars such as our hybrid series of Elk Rainbow Sages™, which are varieties of Jame Sage Hybrids ( Salvia x jamensis) in a broad array of solids and bicolors ranging from pastels to brights. Attractive to hummingbirds and honeybees, they are lovely yet tough crosses that include Autumn Sage (Salvia greggii) and Mountain Sage (Salvia microphylla). The word Elk in the scientific and common names of the Elk Rainbow choices indicates that you are getting a sturdy, colorful, reliable repeat performer.
