Majestic not only for its size - 4’ tall and wide - but this robust grower also satisfies the quest for a true red perennial. Graceful arching stems are crowned with ruby-red flowers from late June through fall. Shear back to 6-8” in June and flower height will be reduced to 2-3’.

Hummingbirds adore Salvia. Bred by Kelly Grummons of Timberline Gardens, Windwalker™ Royal Red was recognized as a superior perennial since it quickly grew bigger, flowered earlier and longer and was winter hardy.

Salvia General Information

Salvia are excellent, easy-to-grow plants for a summer show of intense color. Salvia perform best in full sun. A real heat lover; they respond well to shearing after blooming to prompt fresh foliage and blooms.

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.
