Product Information

A delightful collection of relatively compact and richly coloured salvias that are easy to grow and trouble free, making them the perfect solution for gardeners who are strapped for time, or for those new to growing plants.

Long flowering and reliable, these gorgeous salvias will not set seed, so all of their energy goes into blooming which means that they go on and on and on all season without stopping, giving you far more flower power than other varieties. The bright blooms are produced from an almost black calyx and are held above fragrant, glossy green foliage which makes them a striking specimen plant.

Compact and robust, this new series of salvias is shorter than the traditional forms so ideally suited to containers and raised beds, plus you can easily trim them to size should you need and this will encourage thicker and more floriferous plants.

Perfect for creating a wildlife garden, butterflies and bees adore salvias and these plants will certainly get your garden buzzing with all manner of pollinators that are so important to our gardens and of course you'll be doing your bit to help preserve our bee populations.

Preferring full sun or partial shade in free-draining soil, the Rockin series of salvias are a really low maintenance option too as they are drought tolerant when established, and dont need continuous dead heading to encourage more flowers.

Supplied as a collection of 6 jumbo plug plants for potting up and growing on or for planting straight out where they are to flower, you'll receive 2 plants each of:

  • Blue Suede Shoes New for 2020! Light blue flowers each with a black calyx. H75-100cm (30-40in) x W60-75cm (24-30in)
  • Deep Purple A more compact form of the popular Amistad, with deep purple blooms and black stems. H75-100cm (30-40in) x W60-75cm (24-30in)
  • Fuchsia - a true colour breakthrough for this type of Salvia, Fuchsia pink flowers each with a black calyx on tough plants. H60-90cm (24-36in) x W60-75cm (24-30in)

Top Tips

Lack of water will cause lower leaves to drop. If this happens a quick haircut removing the upper third of growth is all that is needed along with regular watering and plants will bush right up.

Care Information

Planting Advice for Salvia:

  • Salvias grow best in well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade, avoid excessively exposed areas and waterlogged soils. Add horticultural grit to break up heavy soil.
  • Before planting, prepare the soil by digging over and removing any weeds. Incorporate some well-rotted manure to enrich the soil if necessary.
  • When planting a number of perennials, arrange them on the surface so you can see how they will look before planting.
  • Individually knock out each plant from its container. Look at the roots - if they are circling around the compost, it is best to tease them out. To do this, push your fingers into the rootball along the bottom edge and pull. Do this in a couple of places. This should encourage the roots to spread into the surrounding soil.
  • Next use a trowel or spade to create a hole just deep and wide enough to set in the rootball. The aim is to bury just the roots, leaving the bases of the stems (when in growth in summer) or the shoots (in spring) above ground.
  • Firm back around the soil, using your hand for small clumps and your heel on larger areas. Water in well to settle the soil and prevent desiccation.

 

Aftercare advice for your salvias:

  • Feed and water regularly until plants are fully established.
  • Although perennial and hardy to -10C, these salvias will require some winter protection outdoors in the form of a straw mulch and if growing it in containers, move to a cold greenhouse or conservatory to prevent the cold from penetrating to the roots.
  • In spring, apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant

 

Pruning Advice for Salvias:

  • Avoid cutting back until the spring, then can be cut right back
