Salvia microphylla


This North American native plant is one of my favorite super-low-care perennials. Hot Lips is an evergreen shrub that is in bloom with bicolor red and white (with varying amounts of each color) from early summer all the way until frost. 


Hummingbirds, butterflies, and beneficial insects flock to this nectar rich plant. At 3' tall and 3-4' wide, it fits beautifully into small gardens, large containers, and borders and mixed beds.

Like all perennials, the first year planted might be slow or even disappointing, but each year they get stronger and stronger and more and more beautiful. BE PATIENT. 


Sun exposure: Full sun

Zone: 8-9

Size: 36" tall and wide

Bloom time: May through frost


  • Loved by hummingbirds, bees, butterflies, and other beneficial insects
  • Cut flower
  • Drought tolerant, easy care
