Brilliant, cerise pink flowers that mass over the low growing foliage.
‘Heatwave’ Salvias were bred for the dry climates of Australia. They are quick to establish, water wise, love the sun and don’t mind poor soils. Their improved breeding offers compact and well branched plants with tighter foliage so will look good for longer. They were bred from S. greggii and S. microphylla crosses. They are tolerant of light frosts.
Amazing in landscape plantings, containers, en masse or as an informal hedge. Good companion plants include Hemerocallis, grasses, Gaura and Agastache.
Salvia ‘Heatwave Brilliance’ is a great choice for gardens or containers. These rugged plants require little and do so much. Plant into moderately fertile, to humus rich, well drained soil. Choose a sunny position and water to establish (this takes at least four weeks of regular watering), they become dry tolerant once they have settled in. To keep them happy and healthy prune back to a third autumn/winter and they will be more vigorous and well branched in the spring. In summer you can remove spent flowers to encourage a second flush.
The aromatic foliage and abundant flowers attract bees, butterflies and birds.
