Salvia Amistad has proved a huge hit since it was launched a few years ago. It produces a profusion of large deep purple and black tubular flowers from early summer through to the first frosts. It is a bushy, upright perennial plant with aromatic, slightly downy, bright green leaves. Amistad is Spanish for friendship, and seeing how well the colours blend together with such harmony, you’ll soon be best friends with it!
It is a very special variety, that’s also great for cutting. It is perfect for warm and sunny borders, as well as containers in sunny positions. Once established, it is drought tolerant, and is a magnet for bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects. In colder areas, it will need winter protection but it’s easy to grow some cuttings in summer as an insurance policy – and to get more plants for yourself!
