The very best of the salvias, a jewel box of brightness and brilliant to delve into and hugely long performing on minimal TLC. A drought and heat resistant trio — this is a winner.This collection contains 1 x 2 litre pot each of:
- Salvia microphylla 'Cerro Potosí'
- Salvia x jamensis 'Nachtvlinder'
- Salvia 'Jezebel'
Salvias need 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.
