Salvia Rhea

Salvia farinacea cv

This plant is not on the Australian Noxious Weed List

Salvia Rhea is a very compact mealycup sage with a bushy uniform, upright habit and a reliable, long flowering period in summer. The dense spikes of rich purplish-blue flowers are borne in succession on dark purplish stems. The lanceolate leaves are medium green and carry white hairs on the underside. Growing to a height of 60 cm (2 ft) with a similar spread, the flowers are attractive to birds, bees and butterflies.

This plant’s natural habitat is south, central USA and Mexico. It is tolerant of heat and dry conditions and not favoured by plant-eating animals. In climates similar to its natural habitat it will survive winter to become a perennial while in colder climes it can be grown as an annual. Some reseeding can be expected but it is not invasive.

Ideal for bedding or mass planting and borders, this Salvia is a delight in flower.

Offered is a packet of approximately 30 seeds with propagation notes.

All my seed is posted in bubble wrap protection.
