Pineapple sage is another hummingbird favorite that is a late bloomer. I grow it against a South facing wall because it's not hardy here. That gives me the latest blooms possible.
Here too. I've had it go on blooming in pots in a protected spot until the end of December in mild years. Then I bring it into the garage to wait for spring when I can divide it or take cuttings. There are more showy plants but none so long standing as this plain salvia.
The cuphea Vermillionaire is another one that goes on til the end and ends up in the garage, dormant til spring. I have kept one growing under a light out there and it was a large plant 1st thing the next year but now I need the space for........Tomato plants!
