(Dyson's Orangy Pink Hybrid Jame Sage) Many Salvia x jamensis hybrids remind gardeners of sunrise, such as Dyson's Orangy Pink. Light green calyxes faintly striped with red cup its luminous pale salmon pink blossoms with creamy throats.

Jame Sages are crosses of Autumn Sage (Salvia greggii) and Mountain Sage (Salvia microphylla), which are best known for bright colors, including reds.

Native to Mexico and the American Southwest, Jame Sages occur in areas where Autumn Sage and Mountain Sage meet, such as near the agricultural valley of Jame near Mexico's Sierra Madre Mountains.

Determining a Jame Sage's parentage can be complicated, because one or both of its Autumn/Mountain sage parents may also be hybrids. Dyson's Orangy Pink is one of the taller Jame Sages, which tend to be more petite than their parents.

The Autumn/Mountain Sage group has a strong reputation for attracting honeybees and hummingbirds, but not deer. So it's no surprise that Dyson's Orangy Pink is popular with pollinators and shunned by the family Cervidae.

As with its parents, Salvia x jamensis 'Dyson's Orangy Pink' is a subshrub. This means that it is a shrub in the warmer parts of its range and an herbaceous perennial in areas with colder winters.

Jame Sages grow well in full sun to partial shade and aren't picky about soil type except for good drainage. Like all members of their parent group, Dyson's Orangy Pink is drought resistant but appreciates average watering based on local conditions. Try it in a dry garden or amid border and container plantings.
