Characteristics: Deciduous perennial, green foliage with wine coloured stems producing an abundance of intense fuchsia pink flowers, blooms late spring to early summer, hardy, low maintenance, fragrant foliage, attracts bees
Care and Maintenance: Salvia BumbleBerry is easy to grow and thrives when planted in fertile well drained soil. It will tolerate drought but benefits from occasional watering. A full sun or partial shade spot is preferred and deadheading will prolong the flowering season.
Period of Interest: Late spring, early summer. Green foliage produces tall purple stems with striking dark fuschia pink flowers from late spring.
Commonly known as Garden Sage, Salvia BumbleBerry offers intense colour and interest from late spring to early summer. Tall wine coloured stems reach from a mound of green foliage to produce spires of deep fuchsia pink flowers that are incredibly popular with bees and other pollinators.
This clump forming perennial grows well in most sunny spots and requires little maintenance to remain healthy and attractive. Deadheading spent flowers will help promote new blooms and prolong the flowering period.
Salvia BumbleBerry is relatively hardy and can withstand cold temperatures but may need a helping hand if the soil is likely to get very wet over the winter months. This is a versatile perennial that works well in flower beds, borders and containers. It is also popular for flower cuttings to arrange or dry.
