Cultivar Notes - 'Summer Jewel™ Pink'
Sister to earlier AAS Winner Salvia 'Summer Jewel Red', this dwarf sized, compact plant has a prolific bloom count throughout the growing season. As a bonus, the blooms appear almost two weeks earlier than other pink salvias used as comparisons. And of course, the hummingbirds love pink, just as much as they do red!
Series Notes - Summer Jewel™
Summer Jewel is a Salvia coccinea series made up entirely of AAS winners. Exceptional branching habit produces a multitude of flower spikes. Significantly earlier under long day conditions than other varieties. Plants produce an abundance of blooms all summer which attract hummingbirds and other pollinators. Excellent uniformity within series.

Genus Notes - Salvia
The ancient Romans derived this genus name from the Latin salvere, "to heal," in reference to its highly regarded potency in remedying colds and other bodily ailments. The medicinal reputation of Salvias continued to expand throughout the Middle Ages. It also reportedly prolonged life, expanded the memory, and increased wisdom.

Members of the mint family, many Salvias are covered with oil glands that can emit a strong fragrance almost identical to that of other plants--often fruits such as pineapple and grapefruit.

A few species of Salvia possess that rarest of flower colors: rich, true blue. The red-flowered Salvias, with their tubular flower structure, are native to the New World and beloved by the hummingbird.

Salvias are known for their aromatic, attractive foliage in many different sizes, shapes, and hues, as well as for their bold, colorful blooms that flower over a long period. Heat and drought tolerant and loved by hummingbirds. Flowers are long-lasting and plants readily rebloom if deadheaded or if sheared back after flowering.
