Description

Like jewels growing on a stem, this new addition to the salvia brigade is set to become just as popular as ‘Amistad’ and ‘Love and Wishes’. It’s equally long-flowering, velvety and just as gorgeous, or maybe even more so.

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.
