UPDATE: You are a Salvia Greggii, Red Autumn Sage. It is really time for you to get a pruning. The great thing from what I have read is that you can prune this plant 2 times a year even though I climate is hot and dry.
Pruning the Autumn Sage in Hot, Dry ClimatesThanks Beverly H. for your help in identifying this plant. Also, thank you so much for the plant cuttings, depending on the weather this weekend I will have a great time potting them all up. I really appreciate it.
Cut back the salvia greggii during the mid summer or the late winter to keep growth under control. Pruning in late winter will encourage the tips of the plant to branch and set a lot of buds for prolific blooming as the autumn sage comes into its most active period of growth. Pruning in mid summer can sometimes encourage a second flush of heavy bloom. On the whole, the autumn sage has a long blooming period, and although pruning in the summer may remove some flower buds, a light trim can often extend the flowering season. You can also use the summer trim to remove any rampant growth from springtime.
