Salvia Dolomitica

Regular price $5.00 $0.00

Salvia dolomitica is a hardy, fairly fast growing, neat upright shrub, 1-2 m high. It branches from a basal rootstock-like stem and the diameter expands, over time, to form a thicker bush. Simple, aromatic leaves are a fresh green when young and age to an attractive dusty grey-green. Flowers Spring to mid-Summer. The calyx remains after flowering and turns a deep pinkish-purple, lengthening the display. Salvia dolomitica is one of the older South African sages, still adapted to bee pollination. The plants need to be pruned back hard every year or alternatively every second year to encourage bushy, non-woody growth.
