Salvia muirii

Salvia muirii
This small growing shrubby (30 cm) South Africa Salvia from the Cape veldt was named after Dr John Muir who found it in 1915. The flowers are a delightful shade of ice blue with a white flash in the centre . The overall effect is quite dazzling, As it is tolerant of heat and dry like its native habitat it would look good planted amongst silver foliaged yellow flowering Gazanias or as a foreground to the Euryops pectinatus daisy.
2017 update: I am currently out of stock but do have plants available on a regular basis.
