Incredibly long blooming, the masses of fiery cherry-red flowers provide smoldering color throughout the compact bushy habit. An outstanding variety, Salvia Arctic Blaze Red received the ‘Plants of Distinction’ award from University of Georgia Trial Gardens.

Salvia Plant Care

Prefers moist but well-drained soil. Can be divided every 3 - 5 years in early spring. After blooming, cut down to basal growth, as new growth will be more appealing. May flop if given too rich soil or excessive shade. Blooms more profusely with regular watering. Dislikes a spot that is damp over the winter.
