Description
A really choice border plant! Quickly becoming established, the many, strong erect stems are topped with plumes of white and lime-green bracts, which have a maroon underside. A superb plant to give colour balance to the garden. Although biennial, this salvia may be treated as a short lived perennial if flowers are removed in second and subsequent years.

Culinary note: A very aromatic flavour that is ideal for adding to salads for a cheerful coloured contrast. For more details about edible flowers click here.
