large red salvia unidentified in magazine
I'd love it if anyone could identify this plant for me. In the Fall 2007 issue of "Garden ideas and Outdoor Living," there's an article on pages 98-105 on a garden bursting with fall-blooming plants. In the garden, there are two large clumps of what appears to be a large salvia. Unfortunately, it's not identified. I would guess it's 5' or more tall, and probably wider than it is tall. It has large heart-shaped leaves, and numerous very thick bloomstalks of brilliant red flowers. In habit, it reminds me very much of a S. madrensis, just with red flowers instead of yellow! I did a search for "large red salvia" and didn't find anything that looked like it. Any ideas? I would dearly love to know what it is so i can start looking for some!
