An outstanding two-toned lipstick red (hence the name) and white flowered, bushy ornamental sage which has wowed gardeners since it was introduced recently.

When the leaves are crushed or brushed past, they release a delicious blackcurrant scent.  It has a long flowering period from July through to October and works well planted in groups of three in garden borders.

Occasionally the flower colours can vary according to the temperature, and may be all white or all red blooms but generally in an open sunny and sheltered site and as temperatures rise, should remain bi-coloured.

Salvia Hot Lips is classified as a half-hardy perennial which can be lightly pruned in early spring to maintain a bushy habit if it starts to look leggy.

Eventual height and spread:- 90cm x 60cm.

Perennial plants come in hundreds, if not thousands, of varying shapes, sizes and colours and if you are like me, you will always find room for one more in your garden!  They are reliable, hardy plants that breathe life into beds and borders from late spring to late autumn and beyond. These plants are also very attractive to pollinating bees, butterflies and beneficial insects.

  • Our perennials are supplied as either large or jumbo plug plants, depending on the variety, with a good root system and healthy top growth.
  •  Your plugs will benefit from being grown on in large pots, approx. 5 - 10Ltr size.
  • Give them a good soak in tepid water to ensure the roots get a thorough soak.
  • Plant into a good quality multi-purpose compost and water them in.  Pop a label in the pot to remind you what it is.
  • Plant out into the final planting positions after a few weeks when the risk of frost has passed in your area. 
  • Planting in groups of 3’s or 5’s will give a good clump of colour as the plants mature.
  • A good spadeful of organic matter popped into the planting hole will get your plants off to really good start.
  • Give them a good drink of water and water regularly during their first year’s growth and feed with a sprinkling of granular slow release fertiliser.

*With a little planning you can have perennial plants in flower for several months of the year - almost all year round in milder areas.
