True to its name, this Salvia is a great attractor for hummingvirds. The rosy pink flowers are somewhat sticky, growing on 30 inch long stalks. Foliage is somewhat sticky and pungent scented, and is drought tolerant. This plant is often found in understory areas, and does well in partial shade, although in full sun the full fragrance of the leaves are much more obvious. This is a great plant with other California native sages, such as Salvia clevelandii.
