The hummingbirds love 'Mulberry Jam'! I'm excited as I look out of our kitchen window or patio door and see hummingbirds working all the flowers to get to the nectar.

The beautiful flowers are fuzzy and just seem to keep blooming!

The flowers are a deeper color than I could capture in my pics.

I love this Salvia!
