What is Salvia bulleyana
Salvia bulleyana(scientific name: Salvia bulleyana) is endemic to China and is a cold-tolerant perennial (winter deciduous species) in the genus Salvia in the family Lamiaceae.

In summer, it produces purple-lipped flowers by growing spikelets from the tips of the flower stalks that emerge from the rosettes.
