Salvia 'White Velour'
Like its cousin, the purple flowered Salvia leucantha or Mexican Sage, 'White Velour' produces masses of terminal flower spikes in autumn, just when the garden needs a lift from the ravages of summer. The velvety blooms are loved by birds and are long lasting for the vase indoors. Aromatic furry grey-green leaves, lighter underneath, are an added bonus, releasing their familiar sage fragrance when brushed. Plant this easy care perennial in a mid border position to add bulk and extend your flowering season into winter.
Full sun, part shade, free-draining soil. Prune back by half after flowering has finished to maintain a more compact growth habit. Additional pruning should be undertaken in early spring if required.
