Description

We've been on the lookout for a smoky salmon coral form of compact and bushy salvia for several years, to plant with our roses to help keep them blackspot and mildew free. I love this one with rich crimson roses and it's brilliant for containers, flowering all summer and autumn.

Care Tips

A salvia that needs well drained conditions through winter. Do not prune back in winter, keep current years growth and remove when new shoots appear. Protect young plants from late frosts and mulch annually with well-rotted manure or garden compost.
