Salvia x jamensis 'Hot Lips' (Large Plant)

Salvia microphylla 'Hot Lips'

Half-hardy Perennial

Spice up your summer patio pots with Salvia 'Hot Lips'. Naturally bushy plants boast eye-catching flower spikes with open-mouthed, bicolour blooms. In particularly hot weather look out for individual flowers in solid red or solid white. The aromatic foliage has a fine blackcurrant fragrance that only adds to its charm. This showy ornamental sage is perfect for cottage garden borders and containers, or incorporated into bedding schemes for a vibrant summer display. Although perennial, this half hardy Salvia will appreciate some protection from winter weather. Height: 90cm (35"). Spread: 60cm (24").

  1. Eye catching and easy care

    By Hilary Dowthwaite 05-06-2016

    I have had this in my garden for three years now.Lightly clipped around April time it looks very pretty in flower,and many complementary comments have been given.It seems to go on flowering from May right through to September.I am going to investigate how to propagate this delightful plant so I can enjoy it in different areas.At the moment it is planted in a narrow 3 foot border next to a 3 foot wall facing North. I have never given it any winter protection and it has come fine through 3 winters in West Yorkshire.
