Perennial or Annual
1 to 3 feet tall
Full sun or part shade
Grows anywhere, but Hardy zones 9-10
Scarlet sage will grow anywhere. It is easy to grow, and flowers beautifully. If you live in a warmer gardening zone, it may even come back every year ( in zone 9-10 and in some places in zone 8 as well).
Other places it will grow as an annual and quickly come to bloom, but you will need to replant each year. Will reseed itself in zones 6-8. Blooms attract hummingbirds and butterflies.
Best in full sun, but will tolerate some shade. Also, is drought tolerant. Easy and carefree!! A must for your garden.
Once soil warms, temps are around 70, sow seeds 1/16" deep in well drained soil. Germination in about 10-14 days. These can be planted in spring or summer.
