Scarlet Sage (Salvia Coccinea) - If you want a head-turning display of dramatic red blooms, grow Scarlet Sage wildflower seeds, and have not only a beautiful display but a versatile plant that takes the heat well. Scarlet Sage is perennial in warmer climates and an annual where winter temperatures stay below freezing for more than a few hours at a time. The Salvia Coccinea plant reaches 70cm (24 - 36 inches) tall, with 5cm  (1 - 2 inch) triangular leaves growing opposite each other on a square stem. The Scarlet Sage flower is very showy, bright red, about 3cm  (1 inch) long, and arranged in loose whorls along with the upright spikes. Blooms appear continuously from early summer to the first frost. Trim them back and a new flush of blooms will appear. Hummingbirds cannot leave these magnificent blooms alone. Growing Scarlet Sage seeds is greatly rewarding!
