Full Product Details

Product Information

A woody Salvia that impresses with bright orange flower clusters, opening from coppery yellow buds and held high on spikes.

Spires rise upright across summer with loose flowers etched along the straight stems, adding height to the display until early autumn, whether grown from an ornamental pot or partially shaded border.

Not just a treat for you and your garden’s guests, but the bees too! Watch as many pollinators flock to this nectar-rich Salvia, which is even recommended by the RHS as a ‘Plant for Pollinators’.

For best impact, consider planting alongside buttery yellow-flowering perennials to produce a flame-like show of colour under the summer sun, rejuvenating even the most exhausted of displays.

To see the most impressive flowering show possible, be sure to remove the spikes when they start to fade, giving your garden even more summer colour.

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready for planting.

Top Tips

To prolong flowering remove the flower spikes as soon as the blooms start to fade.

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.
  • 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.
  • 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:

  • Feed and water regularly until plants are fully established.
  • In spring, apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant.

Pruning:

  • Prune lightly in late spring when new growth appears to remove dead stems and to maintain a bushy shape
