We are in the heat of summer of mid July, the gardens should be at there best to enjoy, but that is not always the case. Many of the flowering plants are over or are looking kind of tired. Not to mention we gardeners are getting tired of tending to them.
This is where the Australian bred, Salvia Heatwave Collection comes to the rescue! You can actually go on holidays and not worry about these Salvias!
All of the colors offer mass displays of intense colored flowers on a compact shrub.
Requiring minimal watering, fertilizing or pruning, seriously a gardener cannot not find gorgeous flowering plants that are this easy for many months. The don’t appear washed out under bright summer skies amazingly! They are nicely aromatic so that deer don’t like them, but the hummingbirds do!
The Heatwave’s eliminate the variable range of habits associated with many Salvia gregii forms on the market.
Ideal for water wise gardens or displayed in large tubs. Attract birds. Deer don’t like them!
hybrids microphylla x gregii, bred by Howard Bentley of Australia.
