Texas Hummingbird Sage



This is a plant that I started from seed this year. I had never heard of it before but somehow came into ownership of a small seed packet. I thought it looked interesting and given the number of hummingbirds that we entertain, I figured it was worth a shot. I now have it in three different locations on the property...all in different stages of growth since I dragged out the start of the growing season, but we don't need to go into that. It is beautiful and I love the small bits of bright red as well as the entire structure of the bloom.
