This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection)

    This new perennial salvia, is closely related to the sought-after 'Hot Lips', and like its cousin, it produces an abundance of eye-catching, bicoloured (or sometimes solid) purple and white flowers throughout the summer. A good doer in mixed or herbaceous borders, it will also flourish in pots and containers.

  • Garden care: To prolong flowering remove the flower spikes as soon they start to fade. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring. Protect from excessive cold and waterlogged soils.
