Salvia involucrata 'Pink Icicles' - 1 litre pot
A glorious summer flowering hardy perennial, this makes an excellent feature plant for the back of the border, or amongst other shrubby species, or in my case covering the side of an ugly shed! Grey-green leaves, soft to touch, and spikes of large, tubular, pink flowers for most of the summer. Long flowering and tough, coping well with anything from part shade to blazing hot sun. Flowering size 1m to 1.8m high depending on site x 80-100cm wide. I trim mine back almost to ground level in spring once the frosts have passed and it comes away again from the base. 1 litre pot.
