Dramatic Sultry Hues
A heat lover for the warmer zones with early season through summer blooming! Salmon-pink flowers climb dark purple-black stems in airy open whorls and are cradled by matching purple-black calyxes for a dramatic color contrast. Tidy and compact, Salvia Mirage™ Salmon is drought tolerant and carefree once established. Hummingbirds, butterflies and bees adore the blossoms. Aromatic foliage often remains semi-evergreen.

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. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

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.
