This extraordinary plant, very rarely seen in this country, comes from the foothills  of the Andes in Bolivia and is  certainly not shy or retiring with its  cluster of eye catching  shocking  furry pink flowers which emerge from tight buds. Th e whole plant has a very tropical feel with its glossy very pointed leaves. 

Best grown in a pot where it will continue to provide colour right up to the first frost when the plants should be overwintered frost free

Hers a fun salvia fact  - this plant is now very rare in the wild as it struggles to produce viable seed,. One theory is that a very particular hummingbird, now extinct used to pollinate the plant
