A favourite of mine which I love for its understated beauty, and because it’s different from most other Salvias. Forms a small bushy, slightly twiggy, evergreen shrub with silvery-green leaves….sounds unremarkable, but once it starts flowering it’s lovely (and it flowers for months too!). The flowers are best described as a warm rusty-pink colour, and are quite large, with green calyces that turn a similar rusty colour as they age. Does well in tough conditions – full sun, minimal fertiliser, good drainage. Trim to shape after flowering and then leave it be. 60-100cm H x 60-80cm W. 12cm pot.
