Annual Salvia

( Salvia species )

Plant Detail


Salvia are an excellent choice for hot, sunny conditions. They can tolerate drought better than many annual plants. The flower spikes come in a variety of forms depending on the species, but all have flowers held well above the foliage and the spikes provide a nice vertical line in the overall garden design. The tubular florets are a magnet for butterflies and hummingbirds!


Wonderful for mixed borders and rock gardens. Perfect for all kinds of containers. Cut flowers are long-lasting in fresh bouquets. Plant in drifts or bands for best effect.
