Plant Details

One of the best red shrubby Salvias. Quite hardy and highly floriferous and with a compact structure.

Scarlet flowers from May-November. Drought tolerant once established.

The word Salvia comes from salvere, to save. The Romans called culinary Sage "herba sacra", and it was also highly valued by the Chinese as it was thought to prolong life. The Greeks and the Romans thought it banished melancholy. The Chinese imported sage tea from western Europe at five times the price we paid for their tea.

All our plants are supplied established in pots. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
