Salvia mi­cro­phylla ‘Ic­ing Sugar’

NZ Gardener - - In Season -

It is like nearly ev­ery shrubby salvia in flow­er­ing all sum­mer un­til first frosts. If it does en­ter a lull af­ter Christ­mas, just shear the bush lightly over – wa­ter and feed, and it will be­gin again.

The only salvias which don’t go on so long are the hardier herba­ceous types such as Salvia nemorosa. The fine, light heads of salvias team well with bolder flow­ers such as those on this page. (Marsh­wood Gar­dens)
