Salvia curviflora

Salvia curviflora

This is a fairly compact specimen and is a native of Mexico. It is only around 1m tall with willowy stems holding spikes of lovely slim flowers, of a pretty bright pink colour. It seems to be a summer/autumn-flowering type and enjoys sun. It is attractive grown near to silver foliage plants, such as a shrubby Artemisia or Plectranthus argentatus. It could be grown in a large pot. Cut it back in late winter and fertilise at the same time. Propagate from cuttings taken in spring or autumn.

Flowers in January, February, March, April, May, June, December.
