Product Description

Recently introduced, this delightful perennial salvia is closely related to the much-admired 'Hot Lips', and similarly produces an abundance of eye-catching, bicoloured (or sometimes solid) purple and white flowers throughout the summer.

An unusual and very pretty hardy member of the sage family, 'Cherry Lips' is a great 'doer' and will look incredible in a patio pot or in a sunny border.

The bright, two-tone flowers will light up your garden in purple and white, from early summer to the first frosts in October, in a wonderful 5-month display. 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. Really easy to care for and flowers prolifically with minimal care - perfect for beginners.

Supplied as 3 x established plants in 9cm pots, ready to pot on or plant out.

Care Guide

  • Salvias grow best in well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade, avoid excessively exposed areas and waterlogged soils.
  • Before planting, prepare the soil by digging over and removing any weeds. Incorporate some well-rotted manure to enrich the soil if necessary.
  • When planting a number of perennials, arrange them on the surface so you can see how they will look before planting.
  • Individually knock out each plant from its container. Look at the roots if they are circling around the compost, it is best to tease them out. To do this, push your fingers into the rootball along the bottom edge and pull. Do this in a couple of places. This should encourage the roots to spread into the surrounding soil.
  • Next use a trowel or spade to create a hole just deep and wide enough to set in the rootball. The aim is to bury just the roots, leaving the bases of the stems (when in growth in summer) or the shoots (in spring) above ground.
  • Firm back around the soil, using your hand for small clumps and your heel on larger areas. Water in well to settle the soil and prevent desiccation
