Salvia involucrata “Pink Icicles”
Has flowers of soft pink – not a hue
often seen in Salvia blooms, which usually come in much darker
shades of pink. A relative of the familiar Bethel sage, its flower
structure is very similar to that type but the scale of the plant is
much larger. It was a seedling discovered in Australia – as many new
introductions have been, including its long-flowering cousin Salvia involucrata ‘Joan’. Grow in a sunny position. Cut it back in late winter and fertilise at
the same time. It might be beneficial to also prune back in early summer
to control its size. Propagate from cuttings taken in spring or autumn.
