Salvia aurea 'Kirstenbosch'
A tough evergreen species from South Africa, which forms a highly attractive, dense shrub covered in smallish grey-green leaves, with wavy edges. In spring or early summer large rusty-brown flowers emerge from the attractive bracts which stay on the plant long after the flowers drop, and turn from lime green to a rusty brown colour. Slow growing but will eventually reach a height and width of around 1 metre. Full sun is best. 1 litre pot.
