Hotlips salvia is a hardy perennial in your area so you really don't need to take extra precautions. If you are concerned, you can cut the plant back to about a couple inches from the ground after it goes dormant, and cover it with mulch. Remove the mulch in spring when all chances of a frost have passed.
