    Maintenance Notes: 

    This is a wonderful annual Salvia (except in frost free zones) compact and richly colored it is easy and trouble free. It is sterile so it will not set seed and that means it will just bloom, and bloom and bloom all season without stopping.

    You can easily trim to keep the shape or size where you want it, and it will branch out and become even thicker and more full of flowers.

    Regular watering and fertilizing will keep the plant at maximum color and growth but it is amazingly tough and once established in a pot of the garden will tolerate lower levels of food and water. However, severe drought will cause lower leaves to drop and if this happens give it a quick haircut removing the upper 1/3 of growth and once it back to normal watering it will fill back in.

    • I have two of these as thrillers in large planters. They are excellent growers, and the hummingbirds, butterflies, clearwings, and bees love them.

    • The hummingbirds like this plant so much the plant cant keep up with them. I need to plant more of these in pots on my balcony next year so they don't fight. I have a red salvia right next to it that they all but ignore this year and it produces way more flowers. They will use the lantana somewhat, but i feel like this plant cant produce flowers fast enough to feed them all they want, ;/

    • This plant has been amazing performer! Such vigor and such a beautiful, glowing color! Pollinators and hummingbirds seem to love it too. This is one of the best new plants I have grown in years. I hope Proven Winners continue to develop and produce outstanding selections of salvias for salvias and hummingbirds!
