One of the biggest and bluest salvias which grow from a tuber. I've always found it to be hardy in Norfolk but may need mulching or lifting in colder parts of the country.
- Grow Salvia patens 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. Plants form tubers which can be lifted and stored much like Dahlias in colder areas but, I have found it to reliably survive our winters with no protection.
Supplied in a 9cm pot.
