Recently introduced, this delightful perennial salvia is closely related to the much-admired 'Hot Lips', and similarly produces an abundance of eye-catching, bicoloured (or sometimes solid) purple and white flowers throughout the summer.
An unusual and very pretty hardy member of the sage family, 'Cherry Lips' is a great 'doer' and will look incredible in a patio pot or in a sunny border!
The bright, two-tone flowers will light up your garden in purple and white, from early summer to the first frosts in October, in a wonderful 5-month display. As a bonus, the leaves are lightly scented too, which only adds to the appeal of this charming plant.
This salvia is winter hardy and will die back underground in the autumn only to burst into life again with fresh new growth each spring. In cooler summers, you will get whiter flowers, and in hot ones you will get lots of purple.
Really easy to care for and flowers prolifically with minimal care – perfect for beginners!
