Salvia splendens Sellow ex Roem. & Schult.

I started with a couple of theses plants. These plants propagate like crazy in my garden. When I spot spent flowers, I pull them off and sprinkle around my gardens and new seedlings grow everywhere.

Only have about six of these that are alive. Apparently they were not very healthy plants.
