Lovely and compact for the front of a border or rockery. They can even be grown in containers.
The leaves form a low growing, basal, mound. They are 10-15cm long, olive green and roughly textured.
Grow in a sunny location in moderately fertile to humus rich, well drained soil. These Salvias are dry tolerant once established and look wonderful in beds, borders or dry gardens. They have a vigorous growth and are easy care, with solid heat and frost tolerance. It hails from the alpine mountains of the Himalayas. Dormant through winter.
