Salvia in­volu­crata ‘Bethel­lii’

This strik­ing tall grow­ing Salvia from Mex­ico is an ex­cel­lent trou­ble-free choice for the mid­dle or back of a bor­der. Its colour­ful red stems grow to around 1.5m and are topped by bright vi­brant pink flow­ers from July un­til the first frosts. It re­quires a lit­tle stak­ing to keep it from flop­ping, or al­ter­na­tively grow through other plants for sup­port. ‘Bethel­lii’ grows best in full sun or part shade of­ten get­ting frosted back to the ground in the win­ter, but re­li­ably re­grows in spring.
