More About Hot Lips Salvia...

If you are looking for plants that are sure to attract the hummingbirds look no further - Hot Lips Salvia should be at or near the top of your list!

This selection of the Mexican Salvia was introduced by Richard Turner of California after the plant was shared with him by his maid, who brought it from her home in Mexico.

The fast-growing, 30" tall x 6' wide shrub is loaded with some of the most uniquely colored flowers of any plant. The stunning bicolor flowers of Hot Lips Salvia are white with red lips and are irresistible to hummingbirds. In our gardens here in USDA Zone 8 of mid-Georgia, flowers begin to appear in mid-spring and continue to the first hard frost in early winter.

A hardy perennial in USDA Zones 6-11,  Hot Lips Salvia can be grown in garden beds or containers. Above Zone 6 it will be an annual. It prefers a moist, well-drained soil and likes full sun to partial shade. Flowering will be heavier with more sun. It is more drought tolerant when growing in the ground. Plants in containers will require more attention to watering during the hot summer months.

If you are looking for other great hummingbird plants check out Madame Galen Trumpet Vine (Campsis), Hummingbird Plant (Dicliptera suberecta), Sonset Lantana, and Black & Blue Saliva.

Hot Lips Salvia is a must-have plant in hummingbird and butterfly gardens!
