Salvia New Dimension For intense color saturation on neat, compact plants that really take the summer heat, is unbeatable! This charmer begins flowering early (before the end of spring in most climates) and continues up to frost, filling garden and container with colorful blooms that attract hummingbirds, butterflies, and compliments by the dozen!
A selection of Scarlet Sage (S. splendens), this tender perennial is grown as an annual in American gardens. It takes off like crazy, setting large, toothy green foliage below the 4- to 5-inch flowerspikes. Nice in the vase, it’s really a bedding plant extraordinaire, absolutely knockout beautiful in large plantings.
Yet isn’t a space hog, reaching just 10 to 12 inches high and perhaps 8 inches wide. This means you can squeeze it into containers (its nicely vertical habit makes it a great companion to trailing and mounding varieties!) as well as tucking into empty garden spots as needed. Plan to grow an extra packet of seeds just as fill-ins; they will become the stars of any sunny setting!
Apply fertilizer at rate 1 to 2 (100 to 125 ppm N/1.2 to 1.5 mmhos/cm EC) or 150 ppm as needed. Maintain the pH at 5.5 to 6.2.
Insects: Spider Mites, Aphids, Thrips, Whiteflies
