The return of the hummingbird

The hummingbird is back, enjoying the red flowers of our profilic pineapple sage. Our coastal climate allows me to grown pineapple sage year-round. It's currently in our back yard, but I plan to plant it in the front and side yards as well, cutting it back in the summer (it's invasive) but letting it fill in the empty spots during the winter.

According to The Hummingbird Project, Pineapple Sage (aka salvia elegans) is #1 of the top ten hummingbird plants, and the one most likely to be in bloom in cooler climates.
