Ratings & Reviews
(Skyscraper Pink Sage)  Brand new for 2018, this beautiful plant is compact, easy to grow in the shade and full of flowers all season long. They make outstanding container plants as well.

All the Skyscrapertm  Salvias are similar to the Wishes- Wendy's Wish, Ember's Wish & Love and Wishes - Australian plants that have become important in many hummingbird gardens.  'Skyscraper Orange' is smaller in size than the Wishes and more upright in habit.  The flowers are larger as well and displayed above the growth.  It is a soft powder pink with rose gold bracts - unique and eye-catching.

The originator of this variety claims a winter hardiness to USDA Zone 7B.  We have not validated this claim with our own testing at the present time.

Limited availability for 2018.

The Skyscrapertm Salvia trademark is owned by Ball Horticultural Company. The varietal name of this plant is ' HYBSV16017'.
