Salvia madrensis 'Red Neck Girl'
Forsythia Sage is a big robust perennial from the mountains of Mexico. It has large triangular leaves and late season terminal clusters of showy yellow flowers which give it it's common name. This plant likes sun and good soil. Once established it can be divided and moved or shared with friends. This variety, selected and named 'Red Neck Girl' by our friend Tony Avent of Plant Delights Nursery, has striking purple-red color in the upper parts of the large square stems. It was shared with us by our local friend Linda Christine, a true master gardener.
