Salvia ‘Summer Jewel Red’ from Takii is a 2011 AAS award winner. ‘Summer Jewel Red’ offers gardeners an early-blooming, compact Salvia coccinea. Blooming approximately 7 to 9 weeks from sowing, about three weeks earlier than ‘Lady in Red,’ a previous AAS winner also available from Takii, ‘Summer Jewel Red’ is heavily branching and produces an abundance of flower spikes that are loaded with densely packed brilliant red flowers. The flowers are long lasting, and the plants are full, compact, long blooming and heat tolerant.
