TROPICAL SAGE; BLOOD SAGE (Salvia coccinea)

WHAT FLORIDA NATIVE PLANT IS BLOOMING TODAY?: TROPICAL SAGE; BLOOD SAGE (Salvia coccinea)

Despite its small stature, don’t be surprised if a hummingbird stops by for a sip. Self-seeds and can be aggressive.

Mixed reviews on whether it is Edible or not

Learn: http://fnps.org/plants/plant/salvia-coccinea (they say edible)

I’D GO WITH NOT.
