Description

As with most good salvias, it's the contrast between calyx and petals that make this variety such a cracker, a glowing plant for a container, or as an all summer and autumn border filler. It's super-easy to propagate, too.

Care Tips

Plant out after all risk of frosts has past. Feed regularly through the summer months. Best treated as an annual.
