Bright flower spikes of sugary baby pinks will bring a mass of frothy colour in a very short time giving quite remarkable bushy specimens that will be in flower all summer from June to September and quite often well into October.
Planted in full sun or partial shade Salvia gregii ‘Icing Sugar’ looks spectacular in large, decorative pots or as part of an herbaceous summer border. A ‘must have’ plant for a cottage garden scheme. Salvias for the most part are low maintenance plants. They can be used as low hedging as an attractive soft divider between beds or as edging alongside pathways. The pleasant sage-like aromatic scent on the foliage is released when the leaves are brushed against.
Ideal plant for coastal areas. Attractive to bees, butterflies and moths.

Size guide - Pack of 3 Jumbo Plug Plants 

Our premium perennials are supplied as Jumbo plugs. These plants would benefit from potting into large pots (13cm upwards) for a few weeks before planting out in the garden. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost.  Compost volume around 5cm deep x 5cm square. Foliage height 5cm-20cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.

Many salvias are hardy if they are planted in a sheltered sunny position, but will need good winter drainage. It may be worth taking a few cuttings in late summer and growing them on in a frost-free spot during the winter months ready to plant out the following spring.
Pruning is best left until late spring once the risk of a hard frost has passed in your area and you can see that the new growth has started.
