Crimson Flowers All Summer

Salvia Furman’s Red, Salvia greggi 'Furman's Red', is an extremely long blooming selection that is hardy to zone 5.

It is valued for its tightly branched, upright growth habit and profusion of bright red flowers from the beginning of early summer through fall.

The crimson to scarlet flowers is produced in repeated flushes from May through October. Salvia 'Furman's Red' is a woody 2' perennial that looks best if cut back in the spring.

This eye-catching salvia offers an abundance of stunning blooms, over neat crinkly foliage. It is an absolute favorite of hummingbirds.

Culturally undemanding, 'Furman's Red' tolerates a wide range of soils requiring only that they quickly drain. Just a bit of extra water during dry spells encourages more flowers.

'Furman's Red' enjoys warm temperatures and is moderately drought tolerant; mixes well with other beautiful summer flowering perennials.

You will love the results when colorful perennials like purple coneflowers and summer phlox, or yellows like Melampodium, black-eyed Susan and ‘New Gold’ Lantana are combined with 'Furman's Red'.

You will not just want one gorgeous 'Furman's Red' plant, so plant in clusters of three or five!

If you place the plants so they form a triangle or a sweep, the 'Furman's Red' plants will grow together to make one clump of an amazing color.

This beautiful and stunning red grouping will create a bright spot that will be the envy of everyone who sees it!
