Salvia 'African Sky'

A very tough salvia tolerant of full sun, shade, coastal conditions and light frost. Exceptionally drought-tolerant and long flowering from spring through to autumn, with each 10-15cm flower stem opening gradually from the base to the tip. Aromatic light green foliage and prominent two-toned pale mauve-blue and white flowers on open upright stems. This upright salvia can be left to develop as a strong thicket, suitable as a windbreak or hedge. Attractive to bees and beneficial insects.

How to grow

Highly adaptable and tough plant for sun or shade. Withstands long periods without water and tolerant of coastal conditions and light frost. Prune back by half after flowering has finished to maintain a compact growth habit, and to ground level every 2-3 years to regenerate.
