Salvia Neurepia


Salvia microphylla var neurepia



Salvia microphylla var neurepia

Salmon red flowers, pleasantly aromatic that’s a tough, multi-branch perennial that tends to become woody the older it gets. Growing 4 foot tall and wide in full sun or part shade, drought tolerant once establishes. Good garden soil or sandy loam, humus and lime are helpful. The plant produces flowers its first year and grows rapidly, attaining full size in its second year. Adored by hummingbirds and butterflies but usually ignored by deer. Deadheading will promote flower production, pruning back one third to encourage new growth. A beautiful salvia to grow in mass planting or use as a border plant. It’s been a non stop bloomer for us in zone 8 from mid summer and still blooming in January. Thanks to our mild winter.
