Salvia x jamensis 'Sierra San Antonio'
Salvia x jamensis is the name given to a swarm of natural hybrids found in northern Mexico, involving S. greggii and S. microphylla. Explorations in the 1980s by the folks from Yucca Do Nursery in Texas, plus the diligent efforts of hummingbirds and bees, have resulted in several showy selections from the complex. The flowers of ‘Sierra San Antonio’ combine moonlight yellow and an unusual soft orange. A wonderful bee and butterfly attractor!
