Plant Details

One of the essential border plants for a traditional and modern flower border alike. Spikes of tiny, violet-blue flowers above deep green, sage-like leaves for most of summer.

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. 

Salvias like a warm, sunny position in Well-Drained soil.

Height and spread: 90cm x 40cm

All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, 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.
