Product Description

Imagine this lovely new salvia in your garden, with exotic velvet trumpets standing out against dark purple stems - a truly stunning plant!

'Amistad' will flower its socks off for months, filling your border with dark spikes of flowers, set off against its green, furry leaves. The soft flowers are held on erect almost black spikes up to 1.2m, and cupped within an equally attractive black bract. The spires emerge from the base of leaves and erupt through your other plants, never obscuring them, but working in harmony to create a gorgeous palette of colour.

Deadhead regularly and you'll be rewarded with a succession of flower stems, from June to October, bearing gorgeous blooms that bees and butterflies just can't resist.

Flowering well into autumn preferably in sun but also in part-shade, the deep purple, velvet-textured blooms of Salvia 'Amistad' are superb in borders or large containers - especially when mixed with yellows or creams. Plants benefit from a winter mulch and will come back bigger and stronger every year.

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, with an ultimate height 80-120cm.
