For us Salvia aff. chiapensis is tender but the autumn bloom makes this definitely worth the extra care we have to give it. The shiny, deeply veined leaves are lightly bronzed, as are the stems. In September, this develops bloom spikes with whorls of inch-long, two-lipped flowers that look as if they were made of fuchsia-colored velvet. These flowers are set in dark calyces.
