Salvia ‘Wendy’s Wish’


Annuals, Evergreen, Shrubs, Flowers

This spontaneous hybrid’s parentage is unknown, though it bears some resemblance to S. buchananii. Grows to 4 ft. tall and 3 ft. wide, with dark green leaves and purple-red flowers emerging from pinkish brown calyxes. It is named for Wendy Smith, the Australian who found it and requested that part of the proceeds from the sale of every plant go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Moderate to regular water.
