Plant of the Month: Salvia Elegans-Pineapple Sage
The most commonly grown form, 'Scarlet Pineapple' (S. rutilans), grows upright to 3'4 ft. high and wide, with branching, brittle stems; in part shade, growth is lush and needs support. Densely hairy, bright green leaves to four inches long, broadly oval with pointed tip.
In mild-winter areas or indoors, blooms from late fall through spring. Here in Portland, it dies back and goes dormant. It will come back if you mulch it and give it some protection, although it
tends to come up very late in the spring, sometimes not sprouting until late
