Plant Description

Salvia Angel Wings

Salvia hybrid Angel Wings

I acquired this delightful compact Salvia at a plant stall at an open garden I visited in Brisbane in 2013. I had never heard of it before but I loved its gorgeous two-tone pink flowers: soft pink with darker pink markings that did sort of look like angel's wings. The flowers are enhanced by a very dark calyces. It grows to about 50 or 60 cm tall and it seems that it is an Australian hybrid, possibly related to Salvia microphylla or a hybrid between that and Salvia greggii, known as Salvia x Jamensis. It flowers over a long period in the warmer months. It does best in sun and can be pruned by about one-third to a half in May.
