Description
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 hardy perennial, this Salvia will appreciate some protection from winter weather particularly during cold, wet periods. Height: 90cm (35"). Spread: 60cm (24").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Salvia plants prefer a moist, but well-drained soil in full sun, although once established they can also be very drought resistant. This Salvia will appreciate a sheltered position with protection from strong winds.
More Info
Feed and water regularly until fully established. Although perennial, Salvia x jamensis 'Hot Lips' will appreciate some winter protection in all but the mildest areas of the UK, especially during very cold, wet periods. When growing Salvia ‘Hot Lips’ in containers, it can be moved to a cold greenhouse or conservatory over the winter months. Prune lightly in late spring when new growth appears to remove dead stems and maintain a bushy habit.
