Salvia confertiflora 'Meg' - 1 litre pot
Rarely available, this is a peachy-pink hybrid I grew from seed. It makes a big bushy plant that is fantastic for the back of the border, or with other shrubs. The big grey-green leaves are there virtually all year round, and then these long spikes of peach-coloured flowers appear as a bonus from midsummer right through into winter time. The flower stems, buds and calyces are covered with fine grey hairs which really adds to the beauty of this variety. Has proved itself to be hardy to light-medium frosts here. Flowering size 1.5-8m x 70-100cm. 1 litre pot.
