Salvia microphylla 'Hot Lips' TUBESTOCK - Non Native
An elegant and tasteful perennial, Salvia microphylla 'Hot Lips' TUBESTOCK presents a spectacular sight with its bicolour blooms of white and red over a long-extended flowering season.
Evergreen in frost-free climates, the shrubby perennial can be included in cottage-style gardens, borders, wildlife areas, pots, and tubs; when planted in a full sun to partial shade spot and enriched soil, it is 12 weeks until the root system is fully established.
Regular pruning after flowering rewards with continued bloom over the season, and yearly summer and spring mulching plus fertilizing with slow release and eco-seaweed bring out the best of the plant. Hardy, fast-growing, and water wise, Salvia microphylla 'Hot Lips' is a beautiful and reliable asset for both garden and containers.
Prefers most soil types which are well draining. Drought and frost tolerant once established.
Full sun, coastal conditions. 1 meter high x 1 meter wide.
No live plants can be sent to W.A, N.T, Tasmania or overseas.
