Maintenance Notes

This is a wonderful annual Salvia (except in frost free zones, where it is perennial) 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 all season without stopping.

You can easily trim the plant 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. 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.

Great in landscapes and containers.
