What can I say. Theses salvias ar the most dramatic I have grown - beautiful dark blu/ purple flowers and dark sweetly scented foliage. Looks great with Agastache Kudos Manderine.
Sarah Raven plants are of the highest quality and never fail to delight.

Amazing plants - beautiful navy blue flowers that will probably last through the Autumn! Also purchased Salvia Amistad from you. Together they fill the border!
