Salvia Ember's Wish = 'SAL 0101' (PBR) (sage)

Salvia Ember’s Wish = ‘SAL 0101’ (PBR) (sage) £3.99
Position: full sun to lightly dappled shade Soil: humus-rich, well-drained soil Rate of growth: average Flowering period: July to October Flower colour: magenta pink Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection) A sport of the popular ‘Wendy’s Wish’, with upright stems topped from midsummer with loose clusters of fiery coral-orange flowers. It looks wonderful when teamed with yellow flowering perennials where it will quickly fill a gap towards the middle of the border. 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.
