Description

The most luscious magenta Florentine velvet, on tall spires, this is one of my favourite late summer and autumn salvias we have growing in the rose garden through the much-loved Rosa mutabilis.

Care Tips

Protect young plants from frost and plant in a sunny, free-draining spot. Do not prune back in winter, keep current years growth and remove when new shoots appear. Mulch annually.
