Mexico. Salvia elegans blooms so late in the season that customers rarely see it in its glory here. Given a truly warm and sheltered spot, this will bloom throughout the fall. However, gardeners and hummingbirds in warmer climates will enjoy the tubular flowers all winter. The soft somewhat wavy, triangular leaves are scented of pineapple and so this is sometimes called 'Pineapple Sage'.
