Excellent if planted with a rose as we have at Perch Hill, for flowers from July through to November.

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.
