My favorite new plant is a salvia called Mountain Sage. I love how the bloom pods start out sort of coral colored, then send out this scarlet red tongue that opens into a flower. I especially like it with something purple. I have it planted next to Mexican Bush Sage (Salvia leucantha) down in the Cantina Garden, and John planted it as a backdrop for some Purple Fountain Grass up in his beds.

Is it any wonder then that, seeing all this fresh new color, I find myself coming to life as well?
