This delightful perennial is one of the newest members of the Salvia family. It was only introduced in 2020 at the Virtual Chelsea Flower Show and like other Salvia, it produces an abundance of eye-catching, bicoloured purple and white flowers over the summer months.
Appearing in April, these delicate lilac flowers are edged in white for a truly spectacular display. Lasting all the way through to September, 'Oriental Dove' will provide your garden with interest all summer long. As a bonus, the leaves are lightly scented too which only adds to the appeal of this charming plant.
This salvia is winter hardy and will die back underground in the autumn only to burst into life again with fresh new growth each spring. In cooler summers, you will get whiter flowers, and in hot ones you will get lots of purple.
Easy to care for and flowers prolifically with minimal care perfect for beginners. Just plant them in full sun or part shade, in either pots or containers and watch them flourish for 6 long months.
Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready to plant out.
