Salvia microphylla 'Berzerkeley' - A chance seedling found growing at Monterey Bay Nursery between stock plants of S. microphylla UCB and S. microphylla (grahamii). This selection grows as a compact, upright then spreading plant to perhaps 24" tall by 3-4' broad. Leaf texture, habit, flower color, and flower size are all just about halfway between the two presumed parents. Offers most of the outstanding compact habit of Salvia microphylla (grahamii) with bright pink flowers similar to S. microphylla 'UCB'. Luen Miller of Monterey Bay insists that this is the best S. microphylla to grow.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Salvia 'Berzerkeley'.
