Salvia corrugata Blue 40mm TUBESTOCK - Non Native
Salvia corrugata is a medium sized perennial shrub growing to approximately 1.2 meters high, with a similar spread.
Salvia corrugata is reported to be a quick and easy growing plant. It likes full sun and regular water, with rich, well drained soils. Given these conditions the plant stays in bloom for long periods. It is well tested in cold weather, surviving Australian conditions with a good frost and cold tolerance. The plant is said to be evergreen with no mention of leaf loss in cold conditions. It is also said to tolerate heat well.
Regular pruning of the new growth tips will help to keep the size of the plant controlled. However, the growth habit is quite dense and bushy in normal circumstances. Despite the size of the plant it is said to be excellent in containers.
