SALVIA 'MYSTIC SPIRES'
SALVIA 'MYSTIC SPIRES'
PLANTS: PSAMY
For years we grew `Indigo Spires' but it was always hard to fit into a border as it was so large. `Mystic Spires Blue' is its dwarf blue cousin with improved suitability to gardens and perennial borders. Thriving in the heat, this salvia is suitable for most Australian gardens.

VERBENA BONARIENSIS
VERBENA BONARIENSIS
PLANTS: PVEB
Possibly one of the most valuable of summer flowering plants. This beauty from Brazil threads its stiffly upright stems through other perennials, floating hundreds of amethyst hemispheres of bloom. Ideal for the back of the border where it softens the outline of its garden companions.
