Description

My favourite of all the tender perennial salvias we have in our rose garden, underplanting the roses to protect them from fungal diseases – Blackspot and Mildew – and it's working! It flowers from June to November and is always busy with honey and bumblebees. Highly recommended.

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.
