SALVIA Color Spires (R) 'Azure Snow'

Well drained soil
Pot Size


Height x Spread: 45cm x 45cm 

With its striking spires of large violet blue and white bicoloured blooms that sing out against its dark green foliage, ‘Azure Snow’ is a recent introduction that is attracting a lot of attention.

Despite being compact in size, it is very floriferous producing an intense haze of colour in early summer that really draws the eye.  An obvious candidate for an informal cottage garden or to veil the bare lower stems of roses in a mixed bed, its inclusion in a wildlife scheme will help attract the bees and butterflies too.  It thrives in a reasonable to free draining soil in full sun.  Remember to cut back hard after the first flush has faded to encourage a second.
