Product Description

A superb new salvia, which was discovered growing in an Australian garden in 2005. Believed to be a cross between Salvia buchananii and Salvia chiapensis ‘Purple Majesty’, it is a bushy perennial that produces an abundance of magenta pink flowers over a several months from midsummer. These dazzling flowers have a citrus scent and are held on reddish stems, so the overall effect is very colourful.
