The Plants

Salvia 'Love and Wishes'

Lovely magenta flowers, each held by a dark burgundy calyx. If the plant is deadheaded regularly, the flowers will appear over an incredibly long period - often providing colour from June to November. It has a neat and tidy habit too, which makes it great for both borders and pots, and once well established, it will become tolerant of drought.
