Salvia greggii alba x involucrata is
a hybrid from
John Fisher of Australia which is similar to Mulberry Jam.
However, it is a much denser bush with many stems and fairly
dense flower spikes. It should be hardy in USDA zome 7b like
its parents, but needs evaluation in gardens and test plots.
I believe it will be best in full sun to light shade, with
cool nights offering low humidity.
Bloom period should be similar to
the parents, which flower during spring before hot summer days
arrive and autumn when summer starts to cool down. In a Mediterranean
climate, it might bloom all season long.
Stock plant indicating branching habit and density. It
needs to be evaluated in garden settings to determine stem strength and
tightness of form.
