The flowers are cream-coloured, two-lipped and lie behind bracts which might be either rose or purple. The plant has clumps of multiple branches which extend to give the plant width of 30 cm. The bright flowers and bracts attract bees, butterflies and humming birds which are largely responsible for pollination. Salvia horminum is instrumental in the production of alcoholic drinks.
