What are the pros? Beautiful color
What are the cons? None
Planted these on a whim, edge of newly dig garden area and really thought they wouldn't survive. We basically ignored them and willed them to live and live they did! We grew a ton of vegetables (first garden for my husband) and my husband said that he loved the salvia the most.
Easy to grow, self sustaining, took a brutal dry, hot August and survived lack of water while we were on vacation.

Not really a review but rather an answer to the previous "review" (question), which has gone unanswered. It looks like Salvia coccinea, and "scarlet sage" is a common name for S. coccinea. It is odd that the species name is never given. In any case--I've grown S. coccinea many times, and it's beautiful, graceful, and easy. Hummingbirds love it, and it self-sows enough to be a bonus but not a burden. Much more attractive than the squat-looking red salvia so often sold in home-improvement and big-box stores.
So if this is indeed S. coccinea, it's a fabulous, easy plant!
What are the pros? it's sage!
What are the cons? n/a
not a real review but question. what is the scientific name of this species? is it salvia elegans or another variety? I would love to have more information.
