Marbled leaves with a soft velvety texture and large, cupped, blue flowers with white centres and maroon veins in late summer.
Star shaped flowers with a stunning neon-magenta edging and a velvet purple centre, capped with a circle of bright yellow stamen. The flowers heads grow above the shiny green/bronze foliage and create a beautiful summer display.
Extravagantly coloured purple-blue flowers, are held at their bases by near-black calyces on strikingly architectural stems.
This is a wild selection of the Mexican Salvia microphylla - with small green leaves and unique scarlet-red and white, two-toned flowers. Depending on temperature and moisture these will tend to appear almost completely red or white at any one time, but usually both colours are showing.
This variety is similar to E. 'Bowles Mauve', but this has the advantage of larger purple-mauve flowers and is earlier.
