With its striking complementary colours, I think that the common name of painted sage aptly suits Salvia viridis.
Salvia viridis grows on limestone in rocky terrain. It has a native range including Mediterranean Europe and Africa, thus it is well suited to dry environments. Painted sage is known by a long list of common names in English including annual clary, green-topped sage and red-topped sage. ‘Pink Sundae’ is a cultivar specifically selected for its bright carmine-pink bracts (source: Annuals for Every Garden Issue 174).
The vibrant bracts of Salvia viridis overshadow the small flowers that bloom in summertime for a month-long period. Growing in robust multi-branching clumps, plants stand 0.2-0.6m (8 in. to 2 ft.) tall with a similar width. The seeds can be used for the brewing of ales and ciders, described on Wikipedia as “greatly increas[ing] the inebriating quality of the liquor.” Pollinated by bees, Salvia viridis is also used in the production of honey.
