For the uninitiated I would like to introduce this astonishing series of Salvias that can bring months of colour to your display.  Below are some of the reasons I think they are worthy of a place in all our gardens:-

  1. Beautiful two-tone flowers, half white and half coloured.
  2. The flowers are colour changing, depending on the weather. In hotter summers there is more white in the flowers.  In cooler summers they will be more coloured.
  3. Forms a neat bush of around 100cm (40in) in height and spread. Therefore suitable for containers and borders.  They are sun lovers so remember that when placing them.
  4. Provide up to five months of blooms from summer through to the first frosts, and the flowers are abundant.
  5. Being from the sage family, these wonderful plants have lightly scented foliage to add to their appeal.
  6. In many areas of the country, these plants are winter hardy, although those further north in the U.K may need to afford them some protection.
  7. Easy plants to care for, even for the beginner.
  8. Perennial, so will provide colour year after year.

The ‘Lips’ series currently includes:-

Salvia ‘Hot Lips’ – Amazing two-tone half red and half white summer long blooms.

Salvia ‘Amethyst Lips’ – Gorgeous purple and white flowers throughout the summer.

Salvia ‘cherry Lips’ – Fragrant foliage with beautiful pink and white two-tone blooms.
