Tropical or Scarlet Sage is a perennial that reseeds readily. It can grow 2 to 3 ft. in height. Red Flowers are borne on flower spikes on a square stem. It also occurs with pink and white flowers. Tropical Sage is easy growing and is adapted to average conditions in partial sun to full sun. The flowers attract butterflies and hummingbirds. It uniquely flowers year around in central Florida and vibrant new growth emerges in early winter. This is a must have for year around color in the landscape!
