Salvia clevelandii

Hello!

I planted a number of salvia clevelandii on the slope behind my house, and they seemed happy for 2-3 years. Didn't mind being on a steep, dry, rocky slope, and the deer left them alone.

Suddenly, this spring, the leaves on two of them turned bright red, over the course of several weeks, and then the plants dried up and died.

Is s. clevelandii just short-lived, or do you think something else caused this? I'd happily go plant more, but not if I have to replace them every couple of years, because it's kind of a pain to get down there.
