Spikes of 1" blue to purple tubular flowers that are tipped with white on the lower two petals are produced over an extended period beginning in mid to late spring into late summer if moisture is adequate. Heartleaf Skullcap, Scuttelaria ovata, is a shade-loving rhizomatous groundcovering evergreen native perennial with heart-shaped foliage that emerges a purplish red to burgundy and maintains a tinge of that coloration even at maturity. This species is widely distributed throughout much of central and eastern US and extends into both Canada and northern Mexico. Heartleaf Skullcap is tolerant of dry shade once well-established which is one of the more difficult combinations for plants to thrive in. It will be most apt to flower longest under average moisture conditions. The flowers attract hummingbirds, butterflies, and other garden beneficials.

Heatwave™ Breeze Salvia

Salvia 'Heatwave Breeze' PPAF?

Medium purple two-lipped tubular flowers are produced from spring to fall atop a moderately dense bushy plant. Selected for their heat and drought resistance in Australian climates, the Heatwave™ series of Salvias were developed with the durability of Salvia greggii, the Autumn Sage, but with the denser more compact and longer flowering habit of Salvia microphylla, Little Leaf Sage. Although perfectly suited to our Southwestern climates these Salvias also do well under average garden conditions in well-drained soils and will make well-mannered free flowering and forgiving container specimens as well.
