Garden royalty without the fuss.
Romantic, deep purple flowers to fill your heart, garden and containers this summer. The plentiful blooms seem to have three colours at once, a vibrant purple, a blue and a deep purple, they are really striking.
Salvia VIBE ‘Ignition Purple’ has great tolerance to humidity and is tough as they come. The small leaves form a dense bush and add a touch of whimsy to this impressive plant.
A light prune and some fertiliser in summer will keep them blooming into winter (or dead head regularly). Prune back hard in early spring after the frosts have gone and it will reshoot quickly.
Plant in moderately fertile to humus rich, well drained soil. Choose a sunny to lightly shaded spot, water in and they become dry tolerant as they establish.
Spring to early autumn
