Description

Always on the look-out for more salvias, we loved this pure white growing in our white border in the Farmhouse garden, as well as under-planting our soft-pink roses such as ‘Aphrodite’ to help keep them fungal-free — and in our pots with Cosmos ‘Sonata White’. Like all the compact salvias, this is invaluable, long-flowering, a new must-have.

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.
