We have a passion for offering easy to grow plants with tons of color and character. This little saliva checks all of those boxes. With long blooming bright pink flowers that are held in place by dark maroon calyxes the two tone contrast creates a vibrant effect. Salvia is easy to grow, so expect great results with minimal input. When we saw this bold and different cultivar we grabbed it and can't wait to see it add amazing color and performance in your gardens. Growing to about 12 inches tall and wide, this saliva is on the small side, making it a great choice for adding swaths of colors to the front of a garden bed or anywhere that lower growing varieties are desired. Planted in mass it can be truly stunning offering a platform of color to pollinators when it is in bloom. Put it in a small container and spread it out on a porch for pops of delicious color. This plant is a workhorse, no doubt about it.

Salvia Bumbleberry

Easy to grow in almost any climate, saliva is a tough drought resistant plant. During the bloom period it does benefit from additional water and will perform better if watered regularly from spring into mid-summer. Deadheading the plants will encourage new blooms to come on. You can cut them all the way back to the newest foliage at the base of the plant if they become leggy, if cut back the plants may also rebloom, but usually the flowers won't be as voluminous as the first bloom. This is a great plant for beginning gardeners.
