This is a really nice cultivar of S. microphylla with Crimson flowers and dark green leaves which are much larger than other cultivars. Newby Hall can be cut back and kept small, but in a sheltered spot it can grow 1.5m tall and when in flowers it looks magnificent.

Salvia microphylla 'Newby Hall'

  • Mexican Salvias, S. greggii, S. microphylla and their hybrids grow best in full sun.  Sharp drainage is essential and can be achieved by either growing them in pots or incorporating grit into the soil when planting. Regular applications of a  balanced feed is benificial during the growing season. These salvias have a very long flowering season but respond well to cutting back hard when the flower stems get a little long and tired. We cut plants back hard at the begining of August, give them a good feed and go off on holiday. By September they are reinvigorated and back in flower. Prune again in spring after the danger of frosts have passed.
