Salvia Hot Lips is a spectacular plant, covered with striking red and white bicoloured blooms from June right through to mid-autumn. The white tip has red hot lips. During hot summers, this perennial sage may also produce all-red and all-white flowers on the same plant. The compact, bushy plants are clothed in small leaves with a strong, spicy aroma, which may turn dark red in autumn. The nectar-rich flowers are also extremely attractive to butterflies, bees and other pollinators. Plants thrive in beds, borders and containers in a warm, sunny site. Plants may need some protection in extreme winters.
