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 a perennial in warmer climates and an annual where winter temperatures stay below freezing for more than a few hours at a time. The Salvia splendens plant reaches 10 inches tall (25 cm), with 1 - 2 inch triangular leaves growing opposite each other on a square stem. The Scarlet Sage flower is very showy, bright red, about an inch long, and arranged in loose whorls along the upright spikes. Blooms appear continuously from early summer to first frost.
