Salvia Royal Bumble (Salvia greggii)

Salvia, Royal Bumble – Salvia greggii

Salvia, Royal Bumble – Salvia greggii should, perhaps, also be known as ‘Bee Bumble’!

Strong and stocky growth habit with glossy, rich green, scented foliage with dark stems and calyces.

Stunning deep red flowers which are very attractive to bees and other pollinators. Looks great in the border or alternatively in pots or containers. As with most salvias trim back in late summer for Autumn flowering and then leave over the winter. A trim in the warmth of the spring will help strong re-growth.
