Salvia ‘Vatican White’ is big on impact. From bud to bloom, the show will continue for up to five months.

The buds of Clary Sage resemble hops. As they open, both the bracts and flowers are white, surrounding white flowers. It is the bracts that provide the bulk of the show.

The rough, aromatic leaves are mid green and grow to around 23cm long.

Salvia ‘Vatican White’ is commonly known as Clary Sage.

Grow Salvia ‘Vatican White' in a sunny location in well drained soil. Salvias are dry tolerant once established and look wonderful in beds, borders or dry gardens. They have a vigorous growth and are easy care.
