Salvia microphylla 'Hot Lips'

Salvia microphylla 'Hot Lips'
Salvia microphylla, as the name 'micro' suggests, is small in leaf and flower .The form Salvia microphylla 'Hot Lips' is probably the best known of the coloured cultivars as it is more flashy having white to contrast with the red to give it more impact. Plants will take quite hard pruning if they get out of shape .It is almost always in flower and provides food for nectar feeding birds. Ten out of ten!
2017 update: I am currently out of stock but have plants available on a regular basis.
